A blook-sucking parasite has been named after reggae legend Bob Marley. Reseacher Paul Sikkel of Arkansas State University says the naming is not meant to be a sign of disrespect, but of admiration.
"Gnathia marleyi" was discovered more than 10 years ago. It inhabits the coral reefs of the shallow eastern Caribbean.
Other prominent people who have had new species named after them include comedian Stephen Colbert and singer Beyonce.
