The collection database contains over 278,000 catalog records as of April 2011. The online collection database has fewer catalog records and is not current to 2011. Migration to a new database platform within the next few months will allow online access to all catalog records. The catalog records indicate the nature and extent of our collection but should not be treated as primary data. Although taxonomy, specimen identifications and associated data are constantly reviewed, errors such as outdated names, mistaken identifications and erroneous collection event information do occur in our database. Investigators should verify identifications by examination of specimens. For special requests, corrections, comments or suggestions, please email Alan Resetar or call him at 1-312-665-7768.
