Collection management and curation

The Natural History Museum's Hemiptera Curation Team includes 2 full-time staff, as well as several volunteers.

The main collection includes approximately:

  • 5,000 drawers of dry pinned specimens
  • over 1000 drawers of slides

Associated collections include a small spirit collection

The collections are continuing to grow as new material is brought back from fieldwork, or new collections from donations or bequests to the Natural History Museum.
