Earth may be home to a trillion species? -- http://www.archaeologynewsnetwork.blogspot.com/2016/05/earth-may-be-home-to-one-trillion.html

"Earth could contain nearly 1 trillion species, with only one-thousandth of 1 percent now identified"
Study results suggest that actually identifying every microbial species on Earth is an almost unimaginably huge challenge. To put the task in perspective, the Earth Microbiome Project -- a global multidisciplinary project to identify microscope organisms -- has so far cataloged less than 10 million species.
"Of those cataloged species, only about 10,000 have ever been grown in a lab, and fewer than 100,000 have classified sequences... this leaves 100,000 times more microorganisms awaiting discovery -- and 100 million to be fully explored. Microbial biodiversity, it appears, is greater than ever imagined."
