This is the illustration that Karissa Merritt, UC Davis entomology major and artist, created for the Bohart Museum of Entomology calendar for the month of January. The calendar is available to the public for $12.
This banded-winged grasshopper--family Acrididae, subfamily Oedipodinae--apparently has little interest in checking out dating sites on the computer. Kathy Keatley Garvey captured this image on the UC Davis campus in September 2011; identification by Bohart senior museum scientist Steve Heydon.
Her new nickname is “Jessicles.” “Jess” with...

A UC Davis student wrote: "Drones are male bees that contribute only in the perm production for the queen." That inspired Karissa Merritt to create this for the newly published Bohart Museum of Entomology calendar, now available for purchase.
“The swarmers are attracted to lights and tend to expose themselves in the evenings," a UC Davis student wrote about mayflies. The result: this illustration by Karissa Merritt for the Bohart Museum of Entomology's innovative calendar.
"The infected fleas can harbor rats, ground squirrels, rabbits, and occasionally, even house cats," wrote a UC Davis student. The result: this illustration by Karissa Merritt for the Bohart Museum of Entomology calendar.
