Triplehorn Insect Collection Type Catalog

The Triplehorn insect collection houses over 3,000 primary types and many more secondary types. The specimen information for all the primary types is now available on-line. We are in the process of linking these specimens to the publications in which the species were originally described and named. In addition, many specimens have been photographed. Types are available for study by qualified researchers. For further information, contact the the collection curator at osuc-curator@osu.edu.
