Museum of Northern Arizona (MNA-BioMNA-Invertebrates)

BioMNA is a data repository for invertebrate specimens collected over the past century by MNA staff throughout the Southwest, with particular emphasis on the Colorado Plateau, northern Arizona, and Grand Canyon regions, and with much emphasis on aquatic and riparian invertebrates of springs. Invertebrate specimens are pinned, preserved in ethanol (70-80%), or in acetate envelopes, depending on the taxon and life stage.
