State of the collection


Due to the collection's revision by several well-known specialists, it contains numerous types designated by E. Meyrick, E. Strand (especially Formosa material), L. B. Prout, and M. J. Bastelberger.
As a result of the Tineid research done by G. Petersen, from 1951 until his retirement in 1989, a substantial collection of Tineids from the Palaearctic region is held, including numerous types.
