You Called Me What?!, our exhibition looking at how new species are named, closes this Sunday.
For over a year, the exhibition has shed light on some of the scientists who’ve discovered more than 2,500 species since the museum’s beginnings in 1865.
Along with the exhibition, we've been holding a competition to help name a few new species, including a fern (since named Asplenium lepidotum), a forget-me not, and a rockfish.
If you would like to suggest a name for a rockfish, email us your idea – it's your last chance!
You Called Me What?! closes Sunday 2 April.
