The cover illustration is part of a drawing from the monograph "Die günen Armpolypen, die geschwänzten und ungeschwänzten zackigen Wasserflöhe und eine besondere Art kleiner Wasseraale" by Jacob Christian Schaffer, published in Regensburg, Germany in 1755. The picture shows the external and internal anatomy of Daphnia magna. Note that on the dorsal side the female carries numerous peritrich (Ciliata) epibionts. In the upper left corner a parthenogenetic egg is drawn.
