Summary

Full Title

Museu de Ciències Naturals de Barcelona: MCNB-Art

Description

The insects are the better represented Class in the Collection of Arthropods. Most of the specimens that integrate the collection are Coleoptera and Lepidoptera. The collection began in 1882 with the donations of Francesc Martorell. After these donations, collections of great scientific interest as those of A. Codina and R. Zariquiey were also donated. The collection of beetles has remarkable importance for the investigations carried out by the Dr. Francesc Español. These investigations began in 1923 and were continued without interruption until the present. The collections of Tenebrionidae, Anobidae and beetles from caverns are prominent.
