Newly discovered moth species named after Donald Trump

New York [USA], Jan. 19 : Ahead of his swearing-in ceremony, U.S. President-elect Donald Trump has received a unique gift.

A biologist has named a newly discovered species of moth after the next U.S. president.

The Neopalpa donaldtrumpi is a wee little creature found in parts of California and Baja, Mexico, reports the CNN.

The moth sports a very familiar-looking crown of yellowish scales like Trump's golden hairdos.

"With its hair tufts, its presence in US and Mexico, and its fragile habitat that needs conservation, I really did not have any choice with this one other than to name [the moth] after Mr. President-elect himself," said evolutionary biologist Dr. Vazrick Nazari.

Nazari said he also chose the name to bring awareness to conservation challenges.

Washington [USA], Jan. 18 : To encourage the conservation in the fragile areas, scientists have named a new moth as 'Neopalpa donaldtrumpi' in the honour of U.S President-elect Donald Trump.

Biologist Dr. Vazrick Nazari from University of California named the moth officially as ' Neopalpa donaldtrumpi' because it stands out with yellowish-white scales present on the head in adults and in these scales he found an amusing reference to Trump's hairstyle and turned it into an additional justification for its name.

The study, published in the open access journal ZooKeys, hopes that the fame around the new moth will successfully point to the critical need for further conservation efforts in the fragile areas such as the habitat of the new species.
