A Canadian researcher has discovered a new species of moth native to Southern California and Baja California. The insect, which measures just over a centimeter wide, is a visually striking specimen. Golden flakes cover its head, which the researcher likens to the hairdo of President-elect Donald Trump. Hence the name of the new species: Neopalpa donaldtrumpi.
