Harrison G. Dyar - A catalogue of Lepidoptera, 1885 - 1913

About the Project

Maybe your passion has taken you across the continent. Harrison G. Dyar's lengthy excursions collecting and cataloging lepidoptera were just a part of his entomological studies. As honorary custodian of the U.S. National Museum's Lepidoptera collection Dyar worked diligently to expand and systematically arranging this collection. Join us in transcribing his catalog that spans 28 years of collecting from 1885 to 1913 and documents almost 40,000 specimens. The entries are laid out in a chart format by specimen number and name, along with the name of the collector, and the collection date and location. Locations include the Pacific Northwest, the Mountain West, New England and the Caribbean. This work helps to make this information available to further entomological research.
