Does this count as an honor? Researchers in Australia have named a recently discovered horsefly after Beyoncé because it has golden hair on its butt—or, in insect terms, the abdomen. The full name of the insect is Scaptia (Plinthina) beyonceae, though it’s colloquially known as the “gold-bum fly.” Aside from fabulous rear ends, the insect and the singer share an important date. The fly was captured the same year Beyoncé was born—1981—though scientists didn't confirm that it was a new species until now.
