Invertebrate Collection:
Catalogs and Information

Most groups of invertebrates, geologic ages, and geographic regions are represented in the UCMP collections. The holdings include over 15,000 type specimens, fossils from tens of thousands of localities, over 500,000 Recent mollusks, and extensive reference materials.

The UCMP invertebrate catalog contains data on the type (published) specimens in the collections. Our general (stratigraphic) collection is not currently available on-line; for inquiries on non-type specimens and localities, please contact the invertebrate collections manager.

Data available through type specimen searches includes both taxonomic (genus, species, and subspecies names) and publication (author, date, citation) information. Locality searches provide information on location and age.

Go to the Collections Database page to begin your search.
