Science is the poetry of reality.

Be a lamp, or a lifeboat, or a ladder.  Help someone's
soul to heal.  Walk out of your house like a shepherd.
Why, who makes much of a miracle?
As to me I know of nothing else but miracles,...
Every cubic inch of space is a miracle,
Every square yard of the surface of the earth is
spread with the same,
Every foot of the interior swarms with the same.
----Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass (1855)

Subject: A new Scarabaeus Newsletter


A warm hello to all scarab enthusiasts!


After lots of work, we hereby proudly present the first issue of “Scarabaeus,” a new newsletter devoted to all things Scarabaeoidea. Please find it at http://scarabaeusnewsletter.org/ and https://www.facebook.com/scarabaeus.newsletter/.


Due to COVID-19 related issues, it will likely take several more weeks before this newsletter has been issued its ISSN-number. As we do not want to keep it from you any longer, we have decided to pre-publish it now. After we have received the ISSN-number, we will add that number to the issue and officially publish it.


We wish you happy reading and good health!


The editors
