Cover Photo: A Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) photograph of Echiniscus darienae Miller, Horning and Dastych 1995, a new species of Heterotardigrade from the Australian Antarctic. The picture was taken at the Center for Electron Microscopy, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. The scale bar equals 10 m (0.010 mm). The photograph clearly shows two of the characteristics that distinguish this as a new species. One, the "accessory spine" on each of the interior claws of each leg and the position of the primary clava closer to the external cirri than the internal cirri.

Dr. William R. Miller is a Research Associate of the Department of Biology at Southwestern College in Winfield, Kansas. For thirty years, he has studied tardigrades from Montana, Greenland, the Great Barrier Reef, and Antarctica.
