Marine study in Singapore digs up 100 species

Burrowed deep into the mudflats of Lim Chu Kang is a bumpy, warty sea anemone so new to science, it does not even have a scientific name yet.
Its finders have fondly nicknamed it Bill.
It is one of the new findings scientists have made, just a year into the most comprehensive study of marine life here.
In the first phase of the three-year Comprehensive Marine Biodiversity Survey, researchers looking at coastal mudflat and intertidal areas have already found a hundred species, some of which are new for Singapore or new to science altogether.
