Summary

Full Title

UAM Entomology Collection (Arctos)

Description

The UAM Insect collection is the northern-most facility of its kind in the United States. Although a young collection, we have recently surpassed 144,000 cataloged specimens / lots (as of March 2012). Over 99% of these records have been georeferenced. Over 75% of the pinned collection has been databased; approximately 10% of the wet collection has been databased. At least one specimen of every lowest identification, in both the pinned and wet collections, has been databased so we have a complete online taxon inventory of the collection. 61,099 specimens have been identified to the species level - these represent 2,354 species (23% are apparent new records for the state). Coleoptera, Odonata, and Hymenoptera are the most well-curated groups.
