They found each other in life, and now their parasite namesakes have found each other too. Dr. Becky Lasee, retired Project Leader of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service La Crosse Fish Health Center (Center), was recently honored by Eric Leis, a former student and colleague, with a new parasite named in her honor. Henneguya laseeae was discovered and characterized by researchers from the La Crosse Fish Health Center and Mississippi State University. While learning about the new parasite, a remarkable discovery was made. Nestled close to H. laseeae on the parasite’s family tree was Henneguya sutherlandi, named for Dr. Daniel Sutherland, who also happens to be Becky Lasee’s late husband.
