SAN JUAN---Pop singer Jennifer Lopez may be
thinking life is funny after a group of scientists
named a water mite in her honour after discovering
a new species near Puerto Rico.
The music of the Bronx, New York-born entertainer
who has Puerto Rican roots was a hit with the group
while they wrote about their findings, biologist
Vladimir Pesic said in an e-mail yesterday.
"The reason behind the unusual choice of name
for the new species is ... simple: JLo s songs and
videos kept the team in a continuous good mood
when writing the manuscript and watching World
Cup Soccer 2014," said Pesic, who works at the Uni-
versity of Montenegro.
Pesic calls it a small token of gratitude for the
singer of hits such as Ain t It Funny, I Luh Ya Papi
and his personal favourite, All I Have.
He s the corresponding author of the study that
was published Tuesday in the peer-reviewed online
Pesic and other scientists collected the newly bap-
tised Litarachna lopezae mite from a coral reef in
Mona Passage, a treacherous body of water that sep-
arates Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. The
species was found at a depth of 230 feet, the greatest
depth that pontarachnid mites have been found until
now, according to their study.
The mites were collected during a series of trips
from 2010 to 2012 organised by the University of
Puerto Rico and the Caribbean Coral Reef Institute.
Over the years, scientists have named dozens of
organisms after famous people to honour them. Mick
Jagger, for example, has a type of trilobite named
after him, while one spider was named after Bono
and a marine parasite found only in the Caribbean
sea was named after Bob Marley.
Pesic said that while he and other scientists rooted
for different teams during the World Cup, they found
common ground with Lopez.
"As European, I supported Germany, but the whole
team was united with JLo songs," he wrote. (AP)
