The world's longest insect, a 56.7cm long stick-insect from Borneo, is revealed at the Natural History Museum today.

Datuk Chan Chew Lun donated the spectacular specimen to the Museum and you can see it on display in the galleries from today.

This species is new to science and has recently been named Phobaeticus chani (Chan's Megastick is the common name).
