to the website of the Entomological Society of Queensland.
The Society, since its inception in 1923, has promoted the development of pure and applied entomological research in Australia, particularly in Queensland. Membership is open to anyone interested in Entomology.
The Society promotes liaison among entomologists through regular meetings, distributes a News Bulletin to members, provides collection permits and publishes the Australian Entomologist.
Next Meeting - 12 May 2015, 1pm
Penny Mills and Paul Lin from the University of Queensland will talk about
"The Apiomorpha minor species group (Hemiptera: Coccoidea: Eriococcidae)" AND "Cryptic diversity in the parthenogenetic pest, Parasaissetia nigra (Nietner, 1861) (Hemiptera: Coccidae) and its implications for biosecurity"
Queensland Brain Institute Seminar
Professor Charles Stevens from the Molecular Neurobiology Laboratory, The Salk Institute in La Jolla, California, USA
Title: What the fly's nose tells the fly's brain
Abstract: The goal of this talk is to describe the way a particular circuit – the fly olfactory system – provides a unique neural tag for odors. And the motivation is to understand how at least one neural system assigns unique tags to arbitrary points in a high-dimensional space.
Date: Wednesday, 22 April 2015, Time: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm Room:QBI Level 7 Auditorium, UQ Location:Queensland Brain Institute

Wanted: Live Assassin bugs
Andy Walker at The University of Queensland is collecting assassin bugs for a project looking at the biochemistry of their venom. He has suitable collections of common assassin bugs (Pristhesancus plagipennis) and red tiger assassin bugs (Havinthus rufovarius) but other assassins can be exchanged for a bottle of wine by contacting him on 0419712754 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. There is a great page with pictures of many assassin bugs here.
