From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:10 pm on 20 May 2011

A straightened-out seahorse, an orange-spot pipefish and a small, left-eye flounder are among the weird and wonderful species that has just been discovered on New Zealand's largest scientific expedition to the Kermadec Islands. Scientists believe at least two of the creatures are new to science but they've also made new discoveries on dry land. David Reeves, collections manager at Auckland Museum explains.
