Right here I’m sporting a brand new shirt that has our Ask an Entomologist emblem. It is extremely delicate and cozy. Should you’re in search of a spot to print bug shirts, RushOrderTees is a superb place, particularly for quick sleeve shirts like this one! I’m sporting a ladies’s medium and the colour is gentle blue.
Extra in regards to the emblem
Our emblem is of a Mexican treehopper (Membracis mexicana) and is drawn by Nancy Miorelli.
Out of a listing of a number of bugs, we selected this critter as a result of all three of us (Nancy, Joe, and I) like treehoppers and M. mexicana is vibrant (simply take a look at how these colours pop). As well as, these bugs could be present in elements of Central and South America, that are locations which can be particular to us. Jungles and funky bugs are magical.
The Mexican Treehopper is only one species of treehopper (Hemiptera: Membracidae). Treehoppers are a gaggle of bugs which can be associated to leafhoppers and cicadas. There are numerous completely different species of them and so many are morphologically (the looks of their physique) attention-grabbing. Some even are mimics of ants!
So, in case you’re wanting to attract or design some attention-grabbing bugs, treehoppers are an excellent place to start out.
