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.

Figure 8: Origins of the onychophoran lots in the MNHN-MY dataset. Based on the 191 lots bearing information on country of origin, out of 202 lots in the dataset (entries up to 27.01.2015)

Mentions: Onychophorans: The onychophorans specimens come from the whole range of the group. One might be surprised to note in Figure 8 the importance of South Africa as a source of specimens in the collection. These specimens were mainly obtained through exchanges made between the MNHN and other institutes, such as the British Museum (Natural History). The distribution of type material in Figure 9 largely reflects the extensive descriptive work of Bouvier on this group.
