About the Database
  • Researchers will find information on species and collection information using the search parameters provided. The completed search can then be downloaded into an Excel file.

  • Individuals searching this catalog may need to become familiar with synonyms if a complete search of all our holdings is needed.

  • In this catalog, hybrids are cataloged under the species name of the parent that comes first alphabetically. For example, rusty crayfish X northern clearwater crayfish would appear as Orconectes propinquus X Orconectes rusticus .

  • Many county boundaries are streams. The exact location of a collection may straddle county boundaries but may be entered as a single county. If doing a search on counties, a quick scan of holdings in neighboring counties may be useful.
