A newly discovered moth will be named after Donald Trump because the moth’s head resembles Donald Trump’s signature hairstyle.
The officially name of the moth Neopalpa donaldtrumpi, wrote evolutionary biologist Vazrick Nazari, a researcher from Ottowa, Canada, in a new study. Nazari is hoping the small, the yellow-headed moth N. donaldtrumpi will have a big impact on biodiversity awareness — for the general public and perhaps for the president-elect himself. He said, “I hope that the president will make conservation of such fragile ecosystems in the U.S. his top priority,” he told Live Science. “These ecosystems still contain many undiscovered and undescribed species, and deserve to be protected for future generations.” The findings were published online on Jan. 17 in the journal ZooKeys.
