anonymous Please help me with number 5. I’m not sure what species would be.

It's a subject — actually a displaced subject.

In existential-there constructions 'there' is the subject for purposes of inversion to make questions, but the noun phrase after the verb is the subject for purposes of subject-verb agreement.
