The first part enclosed in parens is a lookbehind matching the word "new" followed by a space. Next is a block matching any non white space characters bordered by zero or more spaces. Last is a lookahead block matching zero or more square brackets or parens. This excludes things like arrays and constructor parameters from the return. (for example, "new string[5]" will just return "string".
