"The reason behind the unusual choice of name for the new species is that JLo's songs and videos kept the team in a continuous good mood when writing the manuscript and watching World Cup football 2014, explained Vladimir Pesic from University of Montenegro."
New York, July 16 - A new species of Caribbean coral has been named after singer Jennifer Lopez. Researchers found the new species in Mona Passage off the coast of Puerto Rico.

The newly found Pontarachnid mite represents a common but still unstudied group of marine animals. Nothing is known about the life cycle of these animals.

The new species was collected from a depth of 70 metres, the deepest place from which Pontarachnid mites have been found until now.

The reason behind the unusual choice of name for the new species is that JLo's songs and videos kept the team in a continuous good mood when writing the manuscript and watching World Cup football 2014, explained Vladimir Pesic from University of Montenegro.

The study was published in the journal ZooKeys.
