E.H. Strickland Entomological Museum

The E. H. Strickland Entomological Museum houses over one million specimens. The research collection includes principally Nearctic insects, representing most orders and the major families thereof. The beetle family Carabidae is especially well represented: included are about 300,000 specimens mainly from the Nearctic region, but with an important Neotropical component, and fewer taxa from the remaining biogeographic regions. The moths and butterflies, order Lepidoptera, with over 108,000 specimens, of which just under 75,000 are from Alberta localities, are another group of major interest. The E.H. Strickland Museum collections are in the process of being imaged and databased, and are available at the University of Alberta Museums Search Site.
