The new Phylum (I think the critters are called "Cycliophora") is
decribed by Peter Funch at the Zoological Museum in Copenhagen. Dr.
Moebjerg-Kristensen (author of another new phylum, described some
years ago) is his supervisor. Pictures of the tiny beast were on the
frontpage of the major Danish newspapers yesterday, and it was shown
in the TV-news as first topic - before the ratification of the Balkan
peace-treaty in Paris.
