Beyonce inspira a científicos para nombre de mosca

Los investigadores en Australia han renombrado una extraña raza de moscas con el nombre de la estrella de Crazy In Love, que tuvo a su hija Blue Ivy el sábado pasado (07ene12).

La criatura, que fue descubierta por vez primera el mismo año de nacimiento de la estrella, 1981, llevará desde ahora el nombre de Scaptia (Plinthina) Beyonceae.

Los científicos sostienen que decidieron cambiar el nombre del insecto por sus pelos dorados, que recuerdan a Beyonce.

Bryan Lessard, de la agencia australiana de las ciencias CSIRO, comenta, "Fueron los pelos dorados de la mosca en su abdomen los que me llevaron a darle el nombre en honor de Beyonce, y para dar también un poco de color a la taxonomía de nombrar especies."
