Bras GL, Geoffroy JJ, Albenga L, Mauriès JP - Zookeys (2015)

Bottom Line: This collection, which is of key historic importance, represents the results of two centuries of myriapod and onychophoran studies.None of the occurrences are yet georeferenced.Access to the dataset via the data portals of the MNHN and the GBIF has been made possible through the e-ReColNat project (ANR-11-INBS-0004).

ABSTRACT
The Myriapoda and Onychophora collection dataset inventories the occurrence records of the collection of myriapods and onychophorans in the Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle, Paris. The dataset currently consists of 202 lots of onychophorans, representing all of those present, and almost ten thousand (9 795) lots of myriapods, representing 33 to 40% of the MNHN Myriapoda collection. This collection, which is of key historic importance, represents the results of two centuries of myriapod and onychophoran studies. The sources of the collection are worldwide, with a high representation for metropolitan France for the myriapods. None of the occurrences are yet georeferenced. Access to the dataset via the data portals of the MNHN and the GBIF has been made possible through the e-ReColNat project (ANR-11-INBS-0004). The Myriapoda and Onychophora collection of MNHN is actively expanding, hence both the collection and dataset are in continuous growth. The dataset can be accessed through the portals of GBIF at http://www.gbif.org/dataset/3287044c-8c48-4ad6-81d4-4908071bc8db and the MNHN at http://science.mnhn.fr/institution/mnhn/collection/my/item/search/form.

Mentions: General taxonomic coverage description: As depicted in Figures 1 and 2, to the exception of the onychophorans, the dataset reflects the scientific activities of the researchers carrying out the digitization. Consequently, even though the collection taxonomically covers all myriapods and onychophorans, the dataset mostly comprises millipedes. The digitization work was conducted together with a revision of the specimens concerned, and often leads to a splitting of the original lots into smaller ones. As a result of this, these two collections are also more scattered than the others, with less specimens per lot, as depicted in Figure 3. The taxonomy used in the dataset follows that used in the collection. Like that of most of the large historical collections around the world, it is in many ways outdated, and would be very difficult to update in practice (Soberón et al. 2002, Gaston and May 1992, Alroy 2002).
