NCSM Non-molluscan Invertebrates Collection

Latest version published by North Carolina State Museum of Natural Sciences on Nov 9, 2017 North Carolina State Museum of Natural Sciences

The North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences’ Non-molluscan Invertebrate Collection houses well over 250,000 specimens representing more than 20 phyla. With specimens dating back to the 1870s, the Collection reflects nearly a century and a half of collecting in freshwater, terrestrial, and near- and far-shorts marine habitats of the Carolinas, Mid-Atlantic Region, and southeastern USA. It includes one of the largest collections of freshwater crayfish in, and of the southeastern USA, a substantial and internationally significant myriapod collection, and one of the largest and most historically important collections of marine invertebrates in the Mid-Atlantic region.
