University of Georgia Collection of Arthropods

Project name: Trinational Monarch Knowledge Network

Dataset summary : The University of Georgia Collection of Arthropods (UGCA) serves as the official state repository of insects and other non-marine arthropods. The Collection is part of the UGA Department of Entomology and the Georgia Museum of Natural History (GMNH). The UGCA includes approximately 2,000,000 pinned specimens. In addition the collection houses significant alcohol-preserved and slide-mounted collections. Approximately 60% of the holdings are from the southeastern United States as is consistent with our mission to serve as the primary systematics reference for the state. More than 70% of that regional material is identified to the species level.
