Scientist names newly discovered species after King Diamond

Full time metalhead, who also happens to be a scientist has honoured an icon of metal, King Diamond by naming a newly discovered, although extinct marine worm "Kingnites diamondi".

Professor of paleontology, Dr. Mats E. Eriksson stated that a 420 million year old fossil organism was recently discovered from Silurian rocks of Sweden and Estonia. The remains of a marine worm appears to be sporting jaws and while corpse paint is not easily distinguishable, the honouring of King Diamond is of he highest order.

Dr. Eriksson is no stranger to scientific discoveries. Back in 2006 he named another extinct marine polychaete annelid worm Kalloprion Kilmisteri after a legendary Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister.
