The Entomology collection (including both insects and arachnids) is one of six major collections housed at the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History in Boulder, Colorado. This collection houses over 700,000 insect and spider specimens, representing over 17,000 species, with a focus on the Rocky Mountain region and North America. Current research efforts in the collection are focused on grasshoppers, bees, and Lepidoptera. The goals of this collection are to make our specimens and the data they contain available to researchers and the public, to participate in public education and outreach, and to conduct research relevant to issues of ecology, evolution, and conservation.
