Geographic coverage

The herpetology collection spans 77 countries, although its geographic strength is Mexico (more than 22,000) and the southwestern USA. There is new material from Minnesota and Haiti. Our Mexican reptile specimens have been most actively studied and cited in systematic herpetology publications over recent decades. Most recently, Julio A. Lemos-Espinal contributed 2,600 specimens from the northern Mexican states of Sonora, Chihuahua, and Coahuila.
