Scaptia beyonceae, a horse fly named after Beyonce Knowles. Which (in-)famous person would you like to nominate to get a new species named after him/her?

Asked by rebbel (31549points) January 19th, 2012

What species of animal is it?
Can you name some characteristics and/or appearances of the beast?
What would the Latin name be?

Dicaeidae C. Dionis
An, albeit lovely plumaged, nasty bird with a creaking, nauseating singing voice.
Dicaeidae

You can use an existing species and just add the celeb as the class name

Kudzu TeaPartius

It seems to spread and choke other growth out, but it contributes nothing positive. And it grows like a weed and is hard to kill.

And like the real Kudzu, it flourishes in the Southern US but struggles elsewhere,

@filmfann Haha.
Not to be confused with the Michaeliis Hutchence Hutchenceous, as that one uses snake skin belts for hanging devices.
