The collection database contains over 286,000 catalog records. Specific localities are not shared on the public site. Although taxonomy, specimen identifications and associated data are constantly reviewed, errors such as outdated names, mistaken identifications and erroneous collection event information do occur in our database.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 complete collection data, special requests, corrections, comments or suggestions, please email Alan Resetar or call him at 1-312-665-7494.
