C.A.Triplehorn Insect Collection

 

The Museum's Insect Collection is ranked among the top 12 university collections in North America.  It comprises over 3.5  million catalogued specimens, including one of the world's largest leaf-hopper collections.  Initiated by Professor Josef N. Knull in 1934, the collection has strong holdings in the Coleoptera, Homoptera, Hymenoptera, Odonata, and Orthoptera.  The collection was a recent recipient of a National Science Foundation facilities grant.  Ongoing research is focused on the systematics of beetles and parasitic wasps, and the development of the biodiversity surveys of tropical forest insects.
