When either donating to the museum or selecting "Tell me more about this!", Blathers the curator will say (with abhorrence):

"The rosalia batesi beetle is a type of longhorn beetle, so named for the long antenna upon its head. But did you know that longhorn beetles often grow antenna LONGER than their very own bodies, wot wot? As if this weren't odious enough, look closely and you will find these antenna...are covered in tufts of hair! Best not look closely, I say."
