Sea slug called Mandelia Micocornata named after Mandela by the marine biologists, Angel Vlades and Terry Gosliner who discovered it, as an honour to him

It is regarded as something of an honour to have a species of organism named after you. To have a genus named after you is even more of an honour because new genera are less often named than new species. However, an even greater honour is to have a family named after you because new families are rarely created. Valdés & Gosliner (1999) honoured Nelson Mandela by naming a genus and family of seaslug (Mollusca: Nudibranchia) after him. Mandelia mirocornata has only been recorded along the coast line of the Cape Peninsula.
