Description

The Department of Invertebrate Paleontology collects, curates and studies fossil invertebrates. Its collection includes body fossils of animals such as sponges, bryozoans, corals, trilobites, crustaceans, insects, millipedes, brachiopods and mollusks, as well as trace fossils (ichnofossils) made by invertebrate animals. With more than 86,600 individual cataloged specimens, the collection’s strength is Ohio fossils, but it also includes specimens from elsewhere in North America, and from Europe, Asia and South America.
