Continuing the success of a previous BIFA grant, this project is focused on digitizing the butterfly collection at the Bogor Zoology Museum (MZB) in Indonesia, currently estimated to hold 58,000 specimens.

Exceeding their targets in 2019 with more than 8,000 specimens belonging to the Papilionidae family digitized and published to GBIF, the project team aims to mobilize another 9,300 specimens belonging to the Pieridae and Riodinidae families as well as select type specimens.

Identification of specimens will be done in collaboration with experts at Kyushu Univeristy Museum, Japan, the Museum für Naturkunde in Berlin, Germany, and Naturalis Biodiversity Center in Leiden, Netherlands. To further leverage the experiences gained and attract more participation, the project team will also publish a manual on data mobilization of butterfly collections and records.
