Jakarta (ANTARA News) – Indonesian Institute of Science (LIPI) researcher Amir Hamidy and his associates have identified two new frog species in Belitung (Indonesia) and Sarawak (Malaysia) over the 2008-2012 periods.
“We have identified two new frog species and have named them L. Ingeri and L. Kanowitense”, Amir said in an email received here on Friday.
He said he and his associates from Kyoto University, University Kebangsaan Malaysia, and the University of Malaya published their discovery in Zootaxa journal on July 24, 2012.
He noted that the two new frog species were genetically different from other frogs in the world. “Usually, if two frogs have more than a 3 percent difference in genetic length, they can be categorized as different species. However, in the case of L. Ingeri and L. Kanowitense, there is a difference of more than 9 percent,” Amir pointed out.
L. Ingeri and L. Kanowitense are considere new frog species because ...
they have less than 9% difference from other frogs
they were just discovered in the 2008-2012 period
they have new characteristics that other frogs don't
they were just genetically modified by the researchers
they have more than 9% difference in genetic length from other frogs
Berdasarkan kalimat “However, in the case of L.ingeri and L.kanowitense, there is a difference of more than 9 percent” yang terdapat pada kalimat terakhir di paragraf terakhir, dapat diketahui bahwa kedua spesies katak baru itu memiliki lebih dari 9 persen perbedaan sehingga pilihan jawaban (E) adalah yang paling tepat.
