The Museum’s entomology collection houses approximately 300,000 specimens, primarily from the northeastern United States and collected beginning in the early 1900s. The collection represents a highly important record of biodiversity of our region. A subset of the Museum’s holdings is global in coverage and includes tropical beetles, butterflies and other insects. The department is home to the largest praying mantis (Mantodea) in the Western Hemisphere – totaling more than 14,000 specimens.
