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: Onychophorans: The oldest onychophoran specimen, is MY110 (formerly ON111), a type specimen of Peripatusedwardsi Blanchard, 1847, collected in 1833 from French Guyana. However, as can be seen in Figure 12, the major part of the collecting effort was carried out during Bouvier’s period of activity, from 1887 to 1931. Although Bouvier described a relatively large number of onychophoran taxa, of which many types are stored in this collection, only a few of these type specimens have a collection date.
