#Didyouknow?

Two new species of flies were discovered in the Pulau Ubin mangroves!

One of these, a new genus of Sepsid fly (pictured), was found in the mangroves of Sungei Teris.

The other species โ€“ the Long-Legged Fly (Trigonocera ubinensis), is a predatory insect and bio-controller that feeds on other smaller insects like sandflies and midges. Itโ€™s named after Pulau Ubin!

These new findings underscore the rich biodiversity and natural heritage in Pulau Ubin. Thatโ€™s pretty fly, isnโ€™t it!
