(AURN/AP) - Pop singer Jennifer Lopez may be thinking life is funny after some scientists gave her name to a water mite species they discovered near Puerto Rico. Biologist Vladimir Pesic of the University of Montenegro said in an email Wednesday that the group was entertained during its research by the music of the Bronx, New York-born artist who has Puerto Rican roots.
Pesic calls it a small token of gratitude for the singer of hits such as "I Luh Ya Papi," `'All I Have," and "Ain't It Funny." Pesic is the corresponding author of the study published Tuesday in the peer-reviewed online journal ZooKeys. He and other scientists collected the newly baptized Litarachna lopezae water mite from a coral reef in Mona Passage between Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic.
