Michigan State University entomologists Doug Landis and Ernest "Del" Delfosse have been named fellows of the Entomological Society of America (ESA) for their outstanding contributions to entomology and career achievements that inspire other entomologists. They were honored Sept. 25, 2016, in Orlando, Florida, during the International Congress of Entomology Conference, which drew in 6,500 attendees. Up to 10 ESA fellows are named each year.

In addition, Delfosse, a former ESA president, was given a prestigious honorary membership to ESA.

“This is a highly unusual achievement for a university to have more than one individual selected as an ESA fellow in a given year,” said Entomology Chairperson Bill Ravlin. “Both Del and Doug serve as exemplary researchers, teachers and mentors, and are very deserving of this prestigious distinction.”
