Daniel Montesinos-Tubee is half Dutch, half Peruvian, and lives in Berlin, but has been an enormous Phish fan for over 25 years. (He's only seen three shows, having flown to the U.S. for the 2013 Atlantic City shows, tickled about Fishman's rant there about "kush bush", mention of Peru in "Fee", and other plant-related lyrics.)

As part of his doctoral work in botany across the Andes (basically Peru), he has dedicated to science a new species of a plant that grows in South Peru honoring Trey Anastasio. Full details about the plant (which looks to this non-botanist like a hybrid of dandelion, green bean, and mushroom) are included in this Etymology section of the full article, "Senecio anastasioi (Asteraceae / Compositae: Senecioneae), a new caespitose species from the South Andes of Peru", in Plant Taxonomy, Geography and Floristics (vol. 79, no. 6, pp.355–366).
