Non-People Pullums

Purely for fun, I have made this list of non-people Pullums.
It is not really part of the study but some of the amusing things I have come across during my research.

  • Hadroibidion pullum is a species of beetle in the family Cerambycidae
  • Campostoma pullum is a species of fish in the Cyprinidae family. It is endemic to the United States
  • Leptobrachium pullum is a species of amphibian in the Megophryidae family. It is endemic to Vietnam.
  • Nippoptilia pullum is a moth of the Pterophoridae family, that is known from Papua New Guinea.
  • Tricholoma pullum is a mushroom of the agaric genus Tricholoma. Described as new to science in 1989, it is found in eastern North America.
  • Penicillium pullum is a species of the genus of Penicillium.


Pullum, I believe is also Tamil for Grass, as in the title of the film Vallavanukku Pullum Aayudham (English: For the wise man, even a grass straw is a weapon) is a 2014 Indian Tamil action comedy film directed by comedian Srinath, released by Studio Green on 9 May 2014.
