The Sam Noble Museum Department of Recent Invertebrates (OMNH-RINVRT)

The Collection of Recent Invertebrates, with its >500,000 specimens, presents a nice sampling of invertebrate diversity. Focus of the collection is on Oklahoma invertebrates, but it also contains specimens from more than 100 countries and territories. We are unique among invertebrate collections by pursuing cataloging of all of our specimens. Data is also served to iDigBio under SNOMNH IPT - Recent invertebrates
