A photograph of Strigiphilus garylarsoni Clayton was published by Gary
Larson in one of his volumes of cartoons, along with Clayton's letter
asking him for permission to name a louse after him. It was rumoured that
Larson's publication of the name preceded Clayton's although I don't know
that for sure.
