The details (from wikipedia)


Hans Henderickx (1961- 2016) was born and lived in Mol, Belgium. He was entomologist and expert in Invertebrates. He started in 1984 as researcher in the Life Sciences electron microscope department of Janssen Pharmaceutica (Johnson & Johnson). Initially, he trained in the spearheading technologies regarding digital medical imaging. In 2003 he became department manager. Under the guidance of Dr Narcisse Leleup (Brussels, Belgium) he focused on invertebrate morphology and faunistics. He authored 80 publications on invertebrate palaeontology, biospeleology and faunistics, many of them pivoting around his unrivaled skills in micro-photography. He described 25 new species from different invertebrate groups, including some extinct species from fossils. Already in 2006 he published -as first one- a paper describing a new arachnid and its external and internal morphology with the novel application of X-ray micro-CT in opaque amber. As researcher, he remained connected to the University Antwerp and the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences, until his death in november 2016.
