Dear Scarab Workers,


Well if two is company and three is a crowd then we already have a crowd for the revival and continuation of the Scarabs occasional newsletter!

Independently, we (Auke, Jason, Philippe & James) will write to and ask the originators of the Scarabs occasional newsletter for permission to continue with the newsletter.

Presently, I am particularly wanting a female scarabiologist to join its proposed new editorial panel so that its continuation can present (and represent) a gender neutral final product. Please contact [log in to unmask] if you are interested!

We will keep the scarab list updated of progress here.


Yours sincerely
