SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO- Pop singer and actress Jennifer Lopez may not think naming a water mite species after her to be too flattering.

It was discovered near Puerto Rico where she is from by scientists who were listening to her music during their research.

Biologist Vladimir Pesic of the University of Montenegro says its a small token of gratitude to the singer of the hits "I luh Ya Papi", "All I Have", and "Ain't it Funny."

He and other researchers found the newly named Litarachna lopezae water mite in a coral reef in Mona Passage between Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic.
