AceShowbiz - Scientists in Malaysia have decided to name a new water beetle they discovered after Leonardo DiCaprio. The "Titanic" star was granted the odd honour after the bug was found in the Maliau Basin in Malaysian Borneo.

The tribute coincides with the 20th anniversary of the launch of the environmental activist's Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation.

The 43-year-old appears to be proud of his association with the creature as he changed his Facebook profile to an image of the beetle on Tuesday, May 01.
