Did anyone read the article? They didn't find any new species here, the Pygmy Right Whale has been documented since the 1840s (Far longer than species like the Beaked Whale or Brydes Whale). Yes the title was very glamorous and misleading, typical of journalism these days. This is a potentially important discovery, but it had nothing to do with any new species. They're simply saying evidence points to the Pygmy Right Whale being related to an evolutionary chain that was thought to have no modern descendants.
