Beetle explorers name new species for Roosevelt
Date:3/22/2011

r, including an elk, shrew, mollusk, worm and ant, according to Wheeler. "To this list of honors we are pleased to add this rugged and dashing new species of beetle."

The announcement of the new species was made March 21 during a commemoration ceremony at ASU's Old Main, the site of the former president's speech 100 years ago. Roosevelt was in Arizona at the time to dedicate a new dam on the Salt River that was named in his honor.

Roosevelt is not the first US president to have a beetle named by Wheeler and Miller. The pair of entomologists has named new species in honor of former President George W. Bush, former Vice President Dick Cheney, and former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld (Agathidium bushi, A. cheneyi and A. rumsfeldi). They also named beetles for the late rock 'n' roll legend Roy Orbison and his widow Barbara (Orectochilus orbisonorum); for fictional "Star Wars" character Darth Vader (Agathidium vaderi); and for Stephen Colbert, the satirical host and executive producer of Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report" (Agaporomorphus colberti).
