The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) is Australia's national science agency, and one of their taxonomists (bug people) has named a rare type of horse fly after Beyonce.
That's… nice. We think.
The fly has a large, golden rear end and so Beyonce immediately sprung to the researcher's mind.

Sounds like so much fun! Maybe we should change careers.

We wonder how she'll feel…
