Behold Nanocthulhu lovecrafti

Matthew Buffington of the Smithsonian has published the description of a new genus and species of wasp, named Nanocthulhu lovecrafti, a name partially inspired by the shape of the mandibles. You can see pictures of it, and an explanation for the name, at this entry at WaspWeb (a site whose existence disturbs me somewhat).
