It’s not necessarily supposed to be a compliment, but it’s not every day one gets a new species named after them.
A scientist who found a new species of moth featuring a mop of yellow “hair” on its head has now announced that he is naming the insect after incoming President Donald J. Trump.
Evolutionary biologist Dr. Vazrick Nazari told his Twitter followers that his new yellow-maned moth is to be called Neopalpa donaldtrumpi.
But unsurprisingly, Dr. Nazari has an ulterior motive for naming the new species of moth after the President-Elect.
“The new species is named in honor of Donald J. Trump, to be installed as the 45th President of the United States on January 20, 2017,” ResearchGate.net reports. “The reason for this choice of name is to bring wider public attention to the need to continue protecting fragile habitats in the US that still contain many undescribed species.”

It isn’t known if another attribute of the new moth offered an additional factor to the scientist’s reasoning for naming the creature after Trump. The scientific description of the moth notes that the “genitalia [is] comparatively smaller” than that of other moth species in its class.

Followers of politics might remember the jab that Florida Senator and one-time GOP candidate for president Marco Rubio tossed at fellow candidate Trump during the past primary campaign when Rubio made fun of the size of Trump’s hands, and the wild argument just went downhill (or below the belt) from there.
