They've won numerous awards and garnered various plaudits over the course of their long career, but a new honour has been bestowed upon Radiohead.

Thom Yorke and co. have had a new species of ant named after them, which was discovered in the Venezualan rainforest.

It's been named 'Sericomyrmex radioheadi' by scientists Ana Jesnovik and Ted R. Schulz from the Smithsonian Institution's Ant Lab, who said: "We wanted to honor their music, but more importantly, we wanted to acknowledge the conservation efforts of the band members, especially in raising climate-change awareness.”

The possibilities for puns, meanwhile, are plentiful... 'Paranoid Antroid'? 'The National ANThem'? 'ANTyone Can Play Guitar?'
