Criteria for selection?[edit]

Why are they "lost" if they're newly discovered? What is this article for? Some kind of exploration mystics and imaginary "lost" pasts? Then it crosses science with mythology, a cross that needs external sources. Rursus dixit. (mbork3!) 07:25, 23 January 2011 (UTC)

The term "Lost Worlds" was coined from the fictional book The Lost World by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. It is used to refer to the fact that these enviroments (and the Endemic life featured) were only discovered recently. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Neftaly (talkcontribs) 22:41, 15 October 2012 (UTC)
