  • I was reading about bee diseases (here) and found this:
    "Chronic Bee Paralysis Virus (CBPV), is a virus that cause an infectious disease of the adult honey bees. Previously known with different names in different countries such as 'little blacks' (UK), 'hairless black syndrome' (US), 'mal nero' (Italy), 'Schwarzsucht' (Germany) and 'mal noire' (France) (Ribière et al., 2008)."
    The "prevously" made me a bit sad, since all of these names fit better at my list of sick animals (that often also would be great band names) but I guess I'm just going to list them all anyway...
