Invertebrates

Being one of the oldest museums of Natural History in Sweden, we have a long tradition of collecting also invertebrates. All from the beginning, shells of molluscs have attracted collectors and we have large collections of both subfossilised and recent specimens.

Oscar Carlgren, who worked at the museum between 1912 and 1930, assembled extensive worldwide collections of anthozoans, which include considerable type material.

Also Knut Lindberg (1892-1962) brought together large collections of invertebrates, especially copepods, from India, Afghanistan, and Europe.

The material collected by the Lund University South African (1950-51) and Sri Lanka (1961-62) expeditions, containing many type specimens, are kept at our museum.
