Biologist who discovers blonde moth with tiny genitals names new species after Donald Trump

Evolutionary biologist Dr Vazrick Nazari has discovered a new tiny moth that he took the liberty of naming after President-elect Donald Trump, calling it Neopalpa donaldtrumpi. 


Nazari made the announcement on Twitter, and adding his hopes that the incoming president will pay attention to the environment saying “Maybe now he’ll make conservation of fragile US ecosystems a priority?”




He further elaborated in a statement according to eurkalert.com.


“By naming this species after the 45th President of the United States, I hope to bring some public attention to, and interest in, the importance of alpha-taxonomy in better understanding the neglected micro-fauna component of the North American biodiversity.”


This moth makes its home right where Trump plans to build the wall in the Arizona and California areas, thus prompting Nazari’s comment.


But the reason this moth was given Trump’s name has much to do with its appearance. For one, this moth seems to have a blond patch of scales that swoop back over its head that looks strikingly like Trump’s hair, especially from the side. However, this micro-moth seems to have a micro-problem in the unmentionables.


Nazari describes it in his report posted in Zookeys.


Male genitalia. Characterized by elongate shape, long parallel-sided tegumen and slender, well-rounded uncus; gnathos a short spine; culcitula weakly developed; valva sigmoid, parallel sided with a bifurcating antler-shaped tip; sacculus parabasally located, short and cone shaped; vincular processes variously developed; saccus elongate, nearly as long as tegumen; phallus elongate with a subovate caecum and a distinct subterminal spine.


Translation: It has small genitals.


Nazari even mentions it in his notes, saying the moth’s genitalia is “comparatively smaller than for N. neonata”, which is the moth’s closest relative in the moth kingdom. 


If Nazari was hoping Trump would ease up on his wall idea in order to save this moth, then chances seem smaller than this it’s sacculus parabasally.
