Named after Stanley Kubrick, a new species of frog is a 'clockwork orange' of nature

Two new frog species were discovered in the Amazon Basin. Both had been previously misidentified as another superficially identical species. One of them received a name translating to 'demon' or 'devil' in allusion to the horn-like projections visible on its eyelids. The second one was named in honor of famous American filmmaker Stanley Kubrick, because of his masterpiece A Clockwork Orange.

"Orange Arm-pit" would have been a better designation.
