The Beyonce fly: named after singer

13 posts in this topic

The Scaptia (Plinthina) beyonceae fly, found in far north Queensland and widely considered a pest, has been named in recognition of the unusual gold patch on its abdomen. The fly was first collected in 1981 – the year of the singer's birth.

Bryan Lessard from Australia's science agency, CSIRO, said the insect's behind made it the "all-time diva of flies".

"It was the unique dense golden hairs on the fly's abdomen that led me to name this fly in honour of the performer Beyoncé as well as giving me the chance to demonstrate the fun side of taxonomy – the naming of species," he said.

:lol: Yes, Rihanna. Now we're talking. She's more the full package to me. But without veering off-topic too radically - they should've named that fly after her instead.:tu:
