Previously misidentified as Euglossa ignita in 1874, Euglossa bazinga was identified as a distinct species in 2012 by Brazilian entomologist André Nemésio. Nemésio named the species after bazinga, a catchphrase that the character Sheldon Cooper on the sitcom The Big Bang Theory uses when playing a trick, because he felt the species had "tricked" scientists with its similarity to E. ignita.
