NELLOPTODES GRETAE : Newly Discovered Beetle That Flies Everywhere And Is Blind


“MUCH that passes as idealism is disguised
hatred or disguised love of power.”

– Bertrand Russell

“THE urge to save humanity is almost always a
false-front for the urge to rule it.”

– H.L. Mencken

CHILD soldier, Greta Thunberg has suffered enough abuse from her adult UN handlers, so will let sleeping puppies lie and let you decipher this one for your intelligent self.

Though, a few obvious ironies, in naming a newly discovered beetle after Dear Greta :

  1. “A beetle that flies* everywhere and is blind” – @dpb1881.
  2. Aren’t species becoming extinct, not discovered?

*

A newly discovered species of beetle has been named after young climate activist Greta Thunberg.

Nelloptodes gretae bears little resemblance to its namesake – it is less than 1mm long, and has no wings or eyes. 

The insect does, however, have two long pigtail-like antennae.

Scientist Dr Michael Darby said he chose the name because he was “immensely impressed” by the Swedish teenager’s environmental campaigning.

N. gretae was first found in Kenya in the 1960s by William Block, who donated his samples to the Natural History Museum in London in 1978. It has been held in one of the museum’s collections since.

Dr Darby was studying this collection when he came across the then-nameless species.

rather appropriate name, considering…
