Scientists bugged by mystery of invader in back yard
It never ever ceases to amaze us with its diversity - nature! Here right in the back garden of the Natural History Museum an unidentified insect turns up - and in large numbers.
Insect experts at the Natural History Museum thought they'd seen it all - they do have 28 million specimens in their collection, spanning roughly half a million species.
That was until a tiny red and black bug, no bigger than a grain of rice, turned up in their own back garden.
Despite a year's efforts from specialists across Europe, the mystery insect has defied all attempts to identify it.
