New Moth Species Named After Donald Trump

A newly-discovered species of moth has been named after President-elect Donald Trump, with evolutionary biologist Vazrick Nazari naming it Neopalpa donaldtrumpi. Nazari said he was inspired by the resemblance of the scales on the head of the moth to Trump's hairstyle. But he also said, more seriously, that he did it out of concern that conservation efforts might be under threat in the new administration, telling The Huffington Post he wanted to bring attention to the need to continue protecting fragile ecosystems and protected areas in the U.S.
