Now thats what I call a typo...

This has to be the biggest typo ever. In the latest Nature there appears an Erratum which says:
"In the labelling of Fig. 1 of this Letter, the spelling of 'D. semicelatum' was accidentally reversed to read 'D. mutalecimes'. It appears correctly in the text."
That must be some sort of record.
