Horse Fly named after Beyoncés golden Butt

Wissenschaftler haben eine bislang namenlose Fliege nach Beyoncé benannt. Genauer: Nach ihrem Hintern und dem Destinys Child-Song „Bootylicious“, weil die Fliege als ultimatives Diva-Feature einen goldenen Arsch hat. Wenn ich solches Gejaule wie das von Beyoncé oder ähnlichen „Künstlerinnen“ hören muss, denke ich auch immer an Fliegen mit Goldärschen. Passt.

A previously unnamed species of horse fly with a glamorous golden rear end has been named Beyonce because it is the "all-time diva of flies," researchers say.

The rare Scaptia (Plinthina) beyonceae species of horse fly was collected in 1981 (the year that Beyonce was born) together with two other previously unknown specimens from northeast Queensland's Atherton Tablelands.

The singer Beyonce, on the other hand, was a member of the group Destiny’s Child, which recorded the 2001 hit single "Bootylicious." The fly got its booty-ful name from its extreme diva feature: a big gold butt.

"It was the unique dense golden hairs on the fly's abdomen that led me to name this fly in honor of the performer Beyonce as well as giving me the chance to demonstrate the fun side of taxonomy — the naming of species," Lessard said in a statement.
