Virtual collections of drawer and specimen images for exploratory access
Specimen collections are indispensable to taxonomic and phylogenetic research, yet not always easily accessible. Following the practice of Dr. Christiane Weirauch (Heteroptera Lab @ UC Riverside), I have been taking snapshots of specimen drawers of my taxonomic interests (Heteroptera & Entiminae [Curculionidae] as of 2015) whenever visiting museums. I am in the progress of making the images available here.
