Scientists name newly-discovered species of snail after climate change activist Greta Thunberg

A new species of snail has been named after Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg for her efforts to raise awareness about climate change, say researchers.

The new species – Craspedotropis gretathunberga – is approximately 2mm long and 1mm wide with grey tentacles and a concave shell.

The snail was discovered by a group of citizen scientists working together with scientists from Taxon Expeditions, a company which organises scientific field trips for teams consisting of both scientists and laypeople.
