Not music related, but too good not to post EVERYWHERE on the Internet

Vazrick Nazari is an evolutionary biologist from Ottawa who has a thing for insects–moths, to be specific.

He’s just discovered a new species of moth in Mexico with the following characteristics:

  • It tends to sneakily cross the border into California undetected. It feeds, lives it up and then returns to Mexico.
  • As it grows into adulthood, it begins to display bright yellow scales on its head that sometimes turn yellow-orange. Its body stays white while the wings look tan or maybe greyish.
  • When disturbed, the moth tends to spin in circles.
  • While it is related to a species called Neopalpa neonata, its genitalia is “comparatively smaller” than its relative.

Under the nomenclature rules of science, you discover it, you name it. After taking into consideration all the physical attributes of this newly discovered month, Nazari has named it Neopalpa donaldtrumpi.

Further detail on the month is available here.
