Beetle named after the President of China

Like a lot of news purportedly coming from China, this story may or may not be true. It claims that a Chinese entomologist discovered a new species of wood-destroying beetle and decided to name it after the president of China, Xi Jinping. For whatever reason, the president didn’t appreciate this particular honour, and the Chinese sensors removed all mention of the beetle from the press.

By convention, the person to discover a new species gets to name it, and that can lead to some interesting scientific names. Like the wasp known as Polemistus chewbacca. Or the moth named Heerz lukenatcha.
