Just when you think you’ve heard it all… Beyonce is getting an insect named after her! I’m not talking about one bug. A whole species of horsefly is going to bear the new mother’s name.
Bryan Lessard, a 24-year-old researcher at Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation,discovered the rare species of fly that has been living in a fly collection since 1981. That consequently is the same year that Beyonce was born.
Lessard said he willl call the fly “Scaptia (Plinthina) beyonceae.” He said this is way to ensure that Beyonce would be “in the nature history books forever”. Playing off of a song by her former girl-group, Destiny’s Child, Lessard said the fly is “pretty bootylicious” since it has a golden rear.
Beyonce has yet to comment on the new fly that bears her name, and that coulbe because she recovering from delivering her first child with JayZ earlier this month.
