It seems taxonomy fraudsters have cottoned on the fact that
descriptions no longer require "dead bodies". A description of a new
Dermestidae was published in Entomology and Applied Science Letters.
Fortunately the author was pretty lazy and it ended up being a nomen
nudum. Reference to original article and link to article uncovering
the dirty deed below.


Original article: Description of a new species of the genus
Thaumaglossa (COLEOPTERA: Dermestidae: Megatominae) of the Astrakhan
Region of Russia.
Entomology and Applied Science Letters, 2016, 3, 4: 12-14.
