Thysanoptera Slide Collection

The Thysanoptera collection comprises the records of all the slide-mounted Thysanoptera material at the Natural History Museum, London at the time of the project completion (April 2022). This includes the main collection and discrete collections of Richard Siddoway Bagnall and Laurence Mound.

Each specimen record has been published with an image capturing both the specimen and its associated labels and creating an inventory record with a unique identifier (Data Matrix barcode), taxon information, type status, country level collection locality. Additional images were taken to capture any information on the reverse of the slides and/or the paper envelopes that house the slides.

The data resource generated by the project is available using the link. Please search for the relevant taxa as this dataset if part of a larger project covering a range of Orders and Superfamilies.

This collection was digitised as part of the Museum's Digital Collections Programme.
