A new species of venomous pit viper from Arunachal

Updated : May 30, 2019 08:37 AM IST

Wildlife researcher Rohan Pandit and his teammate Wangchu Phiang first stumbled upon the new-to-science pit viper species in May 2016 while surveying biodiversity in the state of Arunachal Pradesh in India.
In a new paper, researchers have described this species and named it Trimeresurus arunachalensis, or Arunachal pit viper.
While the researchers have described the Arunachal pit viper based on a single specimen, they say the species’ unique features distinguish it from all the other known species of pit vipers.
