Our entomological collections support the research of scientists interested in insects of all sorts studying physiology, genetics, behavior, taxonomy, ecology, morphology and more.

Our collections are home to approximately 46,000 pinned insects, including at least 4 type specimens, from University expeditions led by H. F. Wickham, Dayton Stoner, Bohumil Shimek, Charles C. Nutting, and Homer R. Dill.

Researchers, faculty, instructors, students, and others needing assistance with digital or in-person access, object/specimen loans, other special arrangements, or more detailed information on our research collections may contact our research collections team.
