The Beyonce Fly

An Australian horsefly has been named after celebrity singer, Beyonce, thanks to the golden hairs on its back end. The Scaptia Beyonceae is largely regarded as a pest, but is known to pollinate many plants. It can be found in Queensland. Strangely, the fly was first discovered in 1981 - the same year Beyonce was born.
