Connection: Critically endangered fauna species

Amami-Oshima Island - Muennink's spiny rat, endemic to Okinawa Island, is a critically endangered species. It is found only on the northern part of the island, above 300 m, and is thought to inhabit an area of less than 3 km2. The Iriomote cat lives exclusively on the Japanese island of Iriomote. It has been listed as critically endangered on the IUCN Red List since 2008, as the only population comprises fewer than 250 adult individuals and is considered declining. (Wikipedia - Muennink's spiny rat) & (Wikipedia - Iriomote cat) + (Executive summary, p. 13)

Connection: Turtles and tortoises

Amami-Oshima Island - The Ryukyu black-breasted leaf turtle is an endemic endangered species. (Executive summary, p. 13)

Connection: Notable examples of multiple speciation in one site

Amami-Oshima Island - There are abundant examples of diverse speciation and endemic species in the nominated property. Spiny rats form an endemic genus consisting of three species (Tokudaiada osimensis, T. tokunoshimensis, T. muenninki) endemic to each of the three regions of the nominated property in the Central Ryukyus. (Executive summary, p. 13)

Connection: Salamanders

Amami-Oshima Island - Sword-tail newt (Cynops ensicauda), Anderson's crocodile newt (Echinotriton andersoni) (Executive summary, p. 27)

Amami-Oshima Island - Mt. Yuwandake (694 m) in Amami-Oshima Island is the highest peak in the nominated property, and Tokunoshima Island (a) has Mt. Inokawadake with an altitude of 645 m. The forests of these mountains that are located at the height of 500–600 m or more constitute cloud belts, where sunlight is limited and air humidity is high. Similarly, on the slopes of Mt. Yonahadake (503 m), the highest peak in Okinawa Island, and Mt. Iyudake (446 m), there are cloud forests. (Nomination text, p. 30)

Connection: Mangroves

Amami-Oshima Island - In Japan, mangrove forests covering a decent amount of space can be seen only in the Ryukyu Chain in which the nominated property is included. Among them, the mangrove forest at the mouth of the Sumiyo River in Amami-Oshima Island is the most northern. In Iriomote Island, mangrove forests are found at the mouths of the Nakama River, the Urauchi River, and the Shiira River, etc. (Nomination text, p. 32)

No sure if this connection already exists (couldn't find it under Trivia - apologies if there's already a similar one)... it came to my mind when reading up on some Mexican sites, and discovering that they included totally unexpected components.

Proposal for a new connection: Incongruous components not evident from the site's name

Explanation: site components that are unexpected / don't seem to really fit with the site's name or overall description.

- Mexico - Agave landscape of Tequila: Includes the archaeological site of Guachimontones (ca. 300 BCE - 500 CE), which is unrelated to the industrial/agricultural landscape itself
- Mexico - Pre-Hispanic town of Uxmal: In addition to Uxmal, three other Mayan towns are included: Labná, Kabah and Sayil
- Mexico - Aqueduct of Padre Tembleque: Includes the towns of Zempoala and Otumba, and convents of these towns
- Egypt - Ancient Thebes: includes the modern town of New Gourna, built by Hassan Fathy between 1946 and 1952
- France - Mont-Saint-Michel: Includes the windmill of Moidrey, on the mainland
- Russia - Saint Petersburg: in addition to various palaces and forts around St Petersburg itself, the site also includes the fortress of Shlisselburg on Lake Ladoga, the banks of the Neva between Lake Ladoga and St Petersburg, the estate of the scientist Ivan Pavlov, the datcha of Communist Party leader Zinoviev, the Tolbukhin lighthouse on a little island in the Gulf of Finland, as well as the elevations around St Petersburg and many other little components

I would guess that there are more...

I can understand your thinking, but it will be hard to set criteria when it fits within the connection or not.
We have the similar https://www.worldheritagesite.org/connection/Contains+significant+structures+from+the+20th+Century and https://www.worldheritagesite.org/connection/Contains+significant+structures+from+the+21st+Century

From your examples above, most are deliberate additions (Uxmal, St. Petersburg, Padro Tembleque).

Yeah, you're probably right. It might be tough to find objective criteria.

Connection: Assyrian Empire

Arslantepe Mound - The long sequence of the site covers several millennia at least from the 6th millennium BC until the final destruction of the neo-Hittite town by Sargon II of Assyria in 712 BC. After a short neo-Assyrian occupation, the site was abandoned. (Executive summary, p. 2)

Connection: Cemeteries

Arslantepe Mound - In the Byzantine/Medieval time, the site was used mainly as a cemetery. (Executive summary, p. 2)

Connection: Ancient Anatolian cultures

Arslantepe Mound - Arslantepe 4th millennium levels show fundamental changes in human relations in the period of State formation, which involved Eastern Anatolian and Mesopotamian societies. (...) The location of Arslantepe in an area outside the conventional borders of Mesopotamia, also shows that the mountainous regions surrounding the alluvial plains of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers have greatly contributed to the rise of State civilizations in the old world. (Executive summary, p. 2-3)

Connection: Earth Architecture

Arslantepe Mound - The Arslantepe mud-brick architecture, due to its antiquity, advanced technology, and state of preservation, is also an outstanding example of a traditional building system representative of a millenarian culture shared by all Near Eastern communities. (...) It has been widely exposed and preserved in perfect and integral state, with the original mud-brick walls, mud plaster and floors, internal features and paintings (...). (Executive summary, p. 4)

Connection: Oldest Buildings

Arslantepe Mound - 4000-3000 BC: The Arslantepe 4th millennium "palace" complex is an outstanding example of a new type of monumental public architecture. (Executive summary, p. 4)

Connection: Archaeological potential

Arslantepe Mound - The progressively expanding researches on the Hittite and Neo-Hittite period levels are in progress and can potentially bring to light new monuments of great historical and cultural value in the near future. (Executive summary, p. 4)

Connection: Residential burials

Arslantepe Mound - Common mud brick houses of rather small dimensions, made of one to three rooms, have been excavated. Proof has been found of burials underneath the floors or close to the houses with simple and poorly differentiated grave goods. (Nomination Text, p. 11-12)

Arslantepe covered. Thanks Jurre.

There might be some World Monuments Watch connections also among the newly inscribed ones. I'll check.

I still have some Timgad connections waiting on p. 22 of this tread, and the last 4 for Amami-Oshima Island on page 24.

Assif:
A proposal for a new connection: prevalent marine motives
Atlantida, Sydney Opera, Hamburg (Chilehaus, Sprinkenhof)

Can you explain this a bit more, Assif?

Sydney Opera House: "shells" in the roof
Chilehaus: "The Chilehaus building is famed for its top, which is reminiscent of a ship's prow"
Atlantida Church: are these waves?

Atlantida Church: are these waves?

In that case, you can add the Portuguese Manueline sites (Tomar, Batalha, Belem), as the use of maritime/seafaring motives is a key feature of the Manueline style.
