Colorado Plateau Museum of Arthropod Biodiversity

Specimen Records: 68,979
Media Records: 4,371
iDigBio Last Ingested Date: 2018-11-06

The Colorado Plateau Museum of Arthropod Biodiversity (CPMAB) is one of the museums within the Colorado Plateau Biodiversity Center at Northern Arizona University. The museum houses over 230,000 arthropod specimens, primarily from the western United States and Mexico. Our geographic area of focus is the Colorado Plateau and adjacent regions in the Southwest. The major goal of the museum is to make the collection more relevant to ecologists, especially those working on projects related to issues of conservation and biodiversity. We provide entomological consultation regarding identification and biology of insect and spider pests as well as 'bugs' that people are just curious in knowing about.
