My favorite experience as a scientist was discovering a new species. I was working on Japanese beetles at the time and kept finding larvae infected with a fungus. Other people had seen the fungus in the past but didnít realize it was a new species. When my co-worker and I looked at it closely (really closely) with an electron microscope we found out it was a new genus and a new species of fungus. I had the chance to name them and describe both.
