Our collections continually expand with new material, and a very large part of these new accessions are donations from private collectors. This new material is very important for the documentation and exploration of our insect fauna, and we make sure that it is taken well care of and is kept safely. This way the material becomes available for both scientists and non-scientists who wish to work with the material, or use as reference. The size of newly acquired material varies from one year to another, for instance during 2013 we received almost 200.000 specimens, all from private collectors.
If you have material that you would like the museum to take care of, please contact the museum staff.
