Richard Spruce Collection

How to use the barcode search.

In the Barcode search you will need to type in the herbarium barcode of the specimen you are interested in, into the box. (Kew specimen barcodes begin with the letter K and Natural History Museum ones with the letters BM).

If you want to see other specimens that have the same collector number as the one that you have identified by its barcode, click on the "Show me all specimens with the same number as this barcode" check box, which is on the right of the text box.

Clicking View list will retrieve the specimen you have identified.
