Roesel's bush-cricket (Metrioptera roeselii), 18th century. Illustration from 'Insecten-Belustigung' (1746-1761) by German miniature painter, naturalist and entomologist August Johann Rosel von Rosenhof (1705-1759). Inspired by the work of Maria Sybella Merian, he endeavoured to show all stages of an insect's life history in life-poses where possible. To this end he raised and dissected many insects he found in the surrounding German countryside. He produced some of the most beautiful insect studies ever printed, and is recognised as an important figure in early entomology. This is his own illustration of the bush cricket now named for him. The species is a European bush-cricket, recently established and spreading in the UK.
