*Eupolybothrus cavernicolus*, a cave-dwelling centipede discovered in a
remote karst region of Croatia, has become the first new eukaryotic species
described with fully sequenced transcriptomic profile, DNA barcoding ,
detailed anatomical X-ray micro-tomography (micro-CT), and a movie of the
living specimen, all this in addition to the conventional morphological
description, photos and SEM images.
This, most data-rich species description, represents also the first
biodiversity project that joins the ISA (Investigation-Study-Assay)
Commons, that is an approach created by the genomic and molecular biology
communities to store and describe different data types collected in the
course of a multidisciplinary study.
