Did you know

there is a beetle named after Hitler? And that it is so beloved by extreme-rightists that they are collecting it to extinction?
If Anophthalmus hitleri does die out, it would mean the demise of the only creature on the planet currently named after the Nazi dictator. Rochlingia hitleri, a flying insect fossil named after Hitler in 1934 was already extinct at its christening.
