Scientists of the Department for Protein Evolution at the MPI for Developmental Biology discover a new Fiber Structure


15.01.2016 // One worm, five faces
This bear-like mouth form was completely unknown to the scientists. Thus, they first thought it must be a new species. But it wasn't...Two of five different morphs of Pristionchus borbonicus which was found on the island of La Réunion. The beard-like labial morphology is a novelty known only from this species and P. sycomori (found in South Africa).
