Four new crab species have been found in Palawan by a research team led by Hendrik Freitag, PhD, an associate professor of the Biology Department.  The crabs were discovered in the freshwater inlands of the island province.  The newly discovered endemic species, together with the previously known Insulamon unicorn discovered by Japanese and Singaporean researchers in 1982, make for a revision of the entire Insulamon genus.
