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: Myriapods: The myriapod dataset is a collection for “metropolitan France and the world”. In fact, 56.80% of the databased lots were collected in metropolitan France, representing 72.64% of the total number of specimens in the collection. This is due to the fact that the number of specimens per lot collected in metropolitan France is significantly higher than the average number of specimens per lot for the rest of the world, including the French overseas territories. Even though the metropolitan France collection has been extensively studied (and consequently its lots have been split numerous times following their taxonomic revision), they are still, on average, larger than those coming from the rest of the world. The worldwide distribution, as depicted in Figure 4, is not homogeneous. Both characteristics of the dataset, as well as the taxonomic coverage (see above), reflect the main centres of interest of Demange’s and Mauriès’ research work. The influence of Brolemann’s studies on the faunas of Algeria, Brazil and the USA (Brolemann 1896b, 1897, 1909, 1931, MyriaLit http://www.myriapodology.org/myrlit/) is clearly visible in Figure 5.
