Dr. Apanaskevich’s illustration used on cover of the Journal of Entomology

50-6-JME-CoverAssistant Curator of the United States National Tick Collection, Dr. Dmitry Apanaskevich was surprised to learn that an ink drawing he created and Institute for Coastal Plain Science Research Assistant Mrs. Maria Apanaskevich applied the coloring to, has been used on the cover of the new issue (6) of the Journal of Medical Entomology. This is in fact the second time this year that Dr. Apanaskevich’s illustrations were used for the journal’s cover.

The illustration is a male of a new species of Dermacentor tick found on various wild mammals in Central America, as described by Dr. Apanaskevich in collaboration with a Panamanian colleague.
