CS Collection            Ant Research Collection

This page contains lists of the specimens in my ant research collection. Currently the data is in a simple table format and only contains select information, but eventually it will be database-driven and fully searchable.

I can provide additional details about any specimens in the list (please refer to the accession number and index of the specimen when requesting information, e.g. CSC #220c) and am happy to provide material for research purposes. Note that I did not collect all the specimens in my collection - a number of people have donated or loaned meterial to me, and I am grateful for their generous contributions.
