Progress on a new taxonbytes logo

Here is the current version for the square taxonbytes logo. We will also need a matching header. The logo shows a craquelure silhouette image of the North American leaf-rolling weevil species Haplorhynchites planifrons (LeConte, 1876) (Coleoptera: Attelabidae), based on an image taken by Michael Shillingburg. The original specimen and image are available here. Six “bytes” appear on the weevil.
