英媒:中国发现昆虫新物种,其翼展宽达8英寸


A newly discovered member of theMegaloptera family has been found that could be the largest aquatic insect inthe world.

新发现的这种广翅目类物种可能是世界上最大的水生昆虫。

It was found on a mountain in Chengdu,Sichuan province in China.

这种昆虫被发现于成都的一处山头。

The mysterious specimen of which little isknown has a wingspan of 8.3 inches (21 centimetres).

这种鲜为人知的神秘物种翼展达到了8.3英寸,也就是21厘米。

The family of Megaloptera includes about 300 species of fishflies, dobsonfliesand alderflies.

广翅目类昆虫在种类上有300种,包括鱼蛉类,蛇蜻蜓类,以及蜻蜓科的昆虫类。

The name Megaloptera describes that insectshave large (megal) wings (ptera) compared to their bodies

从广翅目这个名字中我们就可以看出与身体相比这种昆虫拥有巨大的翅膀。

And this latest find is no exception, dwarfing other such insects of the order.

而最新发现的这只在展翼宽度上也确实比之前发现的要大。

According to Scientific American members of the Megaloptera family arenot well known.

根据《科学美国人》杂志的说法,广翅目类昆虫并非为人所熟知。

When they are larvae they spend a lot oftime out of sight in the water, only leaving when they pupate and they becomeadults.

当它们还是幼虫时,一般都生活在水下,不会被人们观察到,只有在他们化蛹成虫后才离开水里。

They can be found in or near a variety ofwet environments including ponds, lakes and swamps.

一般可以在潮湿环境的附近找到它们,包括水塘,湖泊以及湿地。

The huge mandibles at the front of theinsect, meanwhile, are not used for eating but rather to attract females andhold them in place during mating.

而这种昆虫前部的下颚骨并非用来吃东西的,而是用来吸引雌性并且在交配时起稳定作用的。

The species is also known for its ferociousbite, which can break human skin.

这种物种也以其惊人的咬力闻名,可以咬破人体皮肤。

Megaloptera insects typically live for onlya few days as adults, so many will spend there few days of adulthood mating,producing new larvae to grow underwater.

这种昆虫成年后一般只有几天的寿命,而他们中的很多都会利用这几天来进行交配,产生新的幼虫在水下等待孵化。

With a wingspan 8.3 inches (21centimetres), this species breaks the previous record holder for largestaquatic insect, the South American helicopter

damselfly, which has a wingspanof 7.5 inches (19 centimetres).

展翼达到21厘米,打破了先前最大水生昆虫所创造的记录,也就是南美的大痣蟌,其翼展达到19厘米。

MGWorcester., Worcester, United Kingdom, 13 hours agoWhere did they copy it from ?

中国又是从哪里抄袭这种生物的?

mundane,Poole, United Kingdom, 12 hours agoProbably a huge locust; there is a speciethat is around 8 inches. They call it 'tara maraquera' in Venezuela

可能是一种巨型蝗虫,有一种蝗虫体形达到了8英寸,在委内瑞拉,人们称之为taramaraquera。

George,Durham, United Kingdom, 11 hours agoPossibly a Stag Beetle? Used to get thosein the garden when I lived in SE London. They are BIG and, alarmingly, can fly.

或许是一种鹿角虫?当我住在伦敦东南部时,我总能看到这种昆虫,他们非常大,而且能飞。

DLloyd1992,New Forest Southern England, United Kingdom, 12 hours agoI'd scream like a little girl, poo myselfand run.

看到这种东西我会吓得屁滚尿流的。

RealTalk, London, 10 hours agoThats nothing, look up the Whip Spider!

这没啥,去看看鞭蛛,你就知道什么叫做可怕了。

s.gee,staffordshire, United Kingdom, 12 hours agowhat does it taste like ??

这吃起来是什么味道!!

MickMcNulty, Thetford, United Kingdom, 12 hours agoI don't believe it's just been discovered,not something that size which emerges from water. It sounds to me more likesomething scientists have created, either to see if they could do it or justbecause they can. Now they're gauging the reaction to its discovery.

我认为这不是被发现的,至少不是这种来自水里的体形这么大的。这更像是科学家们自己创造出来的,科学家们想看看自己有没有能力这么做或者他们就是想创造这种东西出来。现在他们想看看人们对这“新发现”有何反应罢了。

MiddleHouse forever, Mayfield, United Kingdom, 12 hours agoNot to worry, it will become extinct soon.

不用担心,很快就会灭绝了。

Mikki,Manchester, 12 hours agoThat's got to be an alien pretending to bea bug....................

这肯定是外星人,假扮成昆虫的模样。。。。

SmithenWesson, Tulsa, United States, 11 hours agoI'm sure locals have known about themforever and make a fine soup or something from them.

我觉得当地人早就知道这种东西的存在了,并且利用他们来煮汤吃掉了。

professor_plum,ukville, 11 hours agoMore and more of these monsters will evolveas the planet gets hotter naturally. Look at the size of insects from 70million years ago. They were crazy. Dragonflies the size of a bus.

当地球自然的变暖时,这些怪物会变得更加巨大。看看7000万年前的昆虫罢,真是疯狂啊,当时的蜻蜓就有大巴车那么大啊。

Geoff,Chichester, United Kingdom, 9 hours agoImpossible. To be any bigger animals needto be able to breathe and process air in big quantities. Vertebrates, whichinclude us, have evolved lungs, or for fishes, gills, which do that. Insectsand other invertebrates do not have lungs which puts a limit on how big theycan grow.

不可能的。想要变得更大,动物就得呼吸和处理更多的空气。像我们人类这样的脊椎动物拥有发达的肺部(就好比鱼拥有鱼鳃一样)才能呼吸和处理大量的空气。而昆虫和其他无脊椎动物根本就没有肺,所以这对它们的体形造成了限制。

TimNice but Dim, Posh part of London, United Kingdom, 10 hours agoEnding up in a stir fry with chilli andgarlic at a Chinese restaurant soon...

很快就会在中国餐馆中加入红辣椒和蒜头炒掉吃的。

JoelKamp, San Francisco, Singapore, 6 hours agoTim, if it did, it would still be a wholelot better than the pigs, horses, cows, ducks etc that end up in Englishrestaurants.

楼上的,如果真是这样,那也比英国餐馆中用猪马牛鸭来炒来得好。
