New insects discovered in Colombian Export shipment

Agricultural specialists at San Juan International Airport in Puerto Rico have detected a new species of insect entering the United States during inspections of cut flowers, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency said last week.

The new species were identified by Smithsonian Museum experts as Neoxaba sp. and Monolocoris. They were found in a shipment of 42 boxes of foliage from Colombia.

Oh yeah, but they missed the five keys of Colombian marching powder in the "reefer" container full of bananas...
