From The Observer by Quentin Wheeler

A new species of parasitoid wasp of the family Braconidae from Thailand has been named "in honour of popular singer and performer Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, known professionally as Lady Gaga". The species is known from a single female specimen collected along a nature trail at 507 metres elevation in the Chae Son National Park.
