From Practical Fishkeeping in Britain:
New fish is named after Batman
Holy mackerel – a taxonomist has named a new species of catfish after the caped crusader, Batman.
Ichthyologist Pablo Lehmann, of the Pontificia Universidade Catolica do Rio Grande do Sul, has named the species Otocinclus batmani in a paper in the current volume of the journal Neotropical Ichthyology.
“The name batmani, alludes to Bob Kane’s hero Batman of the comic adventures, which had a bat shape for his symbol, referring to the single W- or bat-shaped vertical spot on the caudal fin”, wrote Lehmann.
