Researchers have found a brand new species of bright-yellow “margarita” snail hiding in plain sight on a coral reef within the Florida Keys. The tiny invertebrate, which lacks a standard snail shell, can shoot out poisonous mucus webs.

The newfound species, named Cayo margarita as an homage to the late Jimmy Buffett, was found on Florida’s Coral Reef, the one barrier reef system in the US. The colourful hue of the snail and its shut proximity to the Florida shoreline impressed researchers to call the snail after “Margaritaville,” the music by Buffett, who died on Sept. 1.
