    Paragordius Obamai
    Hairworm biodiversity survey | January 2013

    The discovery of a new hairworm species–Paragordius obamai

    ” . . The project involved the collection of snails that serve as intermediate hosts for the human parasite Schistosoma mansoni.”

    ” . . .Hairworms use insects such as crickets as hosts and can also use snails as intermediate hosts. . . .”

    “Since the initial discovery of the new hairworm species, this remote part of Kenya has gained international attention. Just 19 kilometers (11 miles) to the northwest of Kasabong stream sits the town of Kogelo, where President Barack H. Obama’s father was born and paternal step-grandmother resides. The town contains the Senator Barack Obama Primary and Secondary Schools (Figure 4). Hanelt, Bolek, and Schmidt-Rhaesa decided to name this new and unique species in honor of the 44th president of the United States—Paragordius obamai.”
