Beyonce is the epitome of a diva. But, now she is super fly! Scientists have dubbed a horse fly first collected in norther Queensland Australia the Scaptia (Plinthina) beyonceae or more commonly called the “beyonce horse fly.”

The bootylicious fly was first collected in 1981, which coincidentally was the same year that Beyonce Knowles was born.

“It was the unique dense golden hairs on the fly’s abdomen that led me to name this fly in honor of the performer Beyonce as well as giving me the chance to demonstrate the fun side of taxonomy — the naming of species,” Bryan Lessard, a researcher from Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization, said in a statement.

Lessard is the researcher primaraly responsible for the naming of the “all-time diva of flies.”
