Drosophila Melanogaster (Fruit fly) is very dear to me. In my early school years, it was the answer to a quiz competition that put me in front of my arch rival. From that day onwards, I have had this warm feelings for this small fly. It probably is the most used fly for genetic research and has produced enormous contributions to science.
But, now, the cruel International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature rejected a petition to protect the name despite the confusion about the genus. The full article is here (http://www.nature.com/news/2010/100407/full/464825a.html)
According to the new taxonomy, poor Fruitfly will be, possibly, called Sophophora Melanogaster!
All I can say is, you will always be my beloved Drosophila Melanogaster, whatever the big wigs of the commission says.
