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.
