[ Leonardo DiCaprio gets a Buggie Honor… ]

Leonardo DiCaprio is a  Big Support & Champion of the Environment w/ the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation that started in 1998. The Taxon Expeditions, which is a firm that helps  untrained volunteers find new specis. The expedition was funded by Leo’s  Foundation. There were 3 new species of water beetle discovered, so a vote was taken to name one after Leo. They can be found at the bottom of a waterfall in Mailau Basin. A remote nature reserve in Borneo.  We now have the ‘Grouvellinus leonardodicaprioi Beetle’.
