Phialella zappai

 Phialella zappai

This species of jellyfish in the family Phialellidae was named for Frank Zappa by Ferdinando Boero, a jellyfish expert and fan from Genova who wrote to the musician hoping to meet him. "There is nothing I would like better than having a jellyfish with my name", Zappa reportedly replied, leading to a meeting and eventually a friendly acquaintance between biologist and musician.
