The NCSC type collection

Type specimens deposited at NCSC are listed alphabetically below.  For links to images of each specimen, simply click on the highlighted text.  We have kept the resolution of a number of images relatively low in order to minimize the size of files.  However, work now continues to increase this quality and provide higher resolution images of all type specimens.
