    That is so cool! Its always great when a feared lost species of something is rediscovered and its even better that it was in a new location, such a dainty little thing and it looks so fragile, I hope it thrives for years to come.

    The Fakahatchee Strand is a really neat place. I've been there a couple of times and would definitely visit again if I were in the area. Anyone who is "on the doorstep" would surely find it worth a visit.

    Cheers,
    Rob
