Deep sea snail named after Joe Strummer of The Clash

A team of scientists recently introduced five new species of snails to the world. According to researchers, these deep sea snails that live in the dark, hot and acidic environment around hydrothermal vents are punk rock. The findings of the researchers were published in the journal Systematics and Biodiversity.

Researchers said that resembling rock stars with mohawks brooding in leather jackets studded with spikes, the snail genus Alviniconcha has a spiked shell. These snails were found in the Western Pacific and Indian Ocean, said researchers.

Shannon Johnson, a researcher at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, said, “Because they look like punk rockers in the 70s and 80s and they have purple blood and live in such an extreme environment, we decided to name one new species after a punk rock icon”.

 

The name A. strummeri, which is given to a snail, is kept ion the honor of Joe Strummer, the lead singer and a guitarist of the British punk rock band The Clash. The golf-ball-sized snails were found near hydrothermal vents located at the bottom of the ocean, which is almost as deep as 11,500 feet.

Researchers who discovered them said that all these newly discovered snails appear to be similar. But the DNA analysis confirmed that they are from separate species.

These were not the only creatures that were named after celebrities and cultural icons. But some other species were also given celebrity tags like Bob Marley crustacean parasite, a Beyoncé bee-like fly and Lady Gaga genus of plant.

It was found that a scientist even named a jellyfish after Frank Zappa in hopes of meeting the musician, which really worked.

On the other hand, Quentin Wheeler, Director of the International Institute for Species Exploration at SUNY, said some of the scientists named their findings after celebrity names to draw attention towards their work.
