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 11: Number of myriapod lots containing type specimens by year of collection. Based on the 875 lots containing types with collection date.

Mentions: Myriapods: The oldest myriapod specimen databased to date is MY4389, Rhinocricusolivaceus (Newport, 1844), which was collected in 1835 from Mexico. However, the acquisition rates were highest during two distinct periods, as can be seen in Figure 10. The first period corresponds to the activity of Brolemann from 1890 until his death in 1933. The second period, after World War II, corresponds to a renewal of interest in myriapodology at the MNHN, with the arrival of scientists such as Demange in 1942 and Mauriès in 1959. It should be noted, however, that specimens collected since 1990 are less well represented in the database than the older specimens, because they are still under study and will be progressively databased in the future. This is also illustrated in Figure 11. The number of type specimens per lot is higher during the first period than during Brolemann’s activity, mainly due to his intense collecting and important taxonomic work, including the description of a large number of new taxa.
