Welcome to the University of Minnesota Insect Collection!
Welcome to the University of Minnesota virtual insects portal and digital collections resource. Complete digitization of the UMSP insect collection is currently under way with the support of the National Science Foundation and the Department of Entomology, at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. For more information on the UMSP collection, digitization funding support, and research, please visit our “About Us” page.
This site is being newly constructed to provide access by zooming images to the more than 3.7 million specimens currently conserved in the UMSP. In the interim, please browse the zooming images (ZUI) below and the information throughout the site. Check back often and follow our “NEWS” page for the latest updates!
