Auburn University graduate student Justin Havird has named a new
species of fish, Lepidocephalichthys zeppelini, because the fish's
pectoral fin reminded him of the double-neck guitar used by Led Zeppelin
band member Jimmy Page.
"I'm a big Led Zeppelin fan, and I was listening to them while I was working on the fish," Havird said. "The structure that makes this species unique just reminded me of the guitar that Jimmy Page played."
The new species is described in the August issue of the journal Zootaxa.

The
Zeppelin Loach, a newly named species native to Thailand and Vietnam,
was named after the rock band Led Zeppelin. The fish pictured here from
the Florida Museum collections is the type specimen for the new species.

"More rock-inspired names
This is not the first musically-inspired fish name, however. A species of mudskipper goby from New Guinea was named as Zappa confluentus after Frank Zappa, (who also has a jellyfish, an extinct mollusc and a spider named after him!), while Freddy Mercury has a species of reef-dwelling isopod, Cirolana mercuryi named in his honour."
