The historical collection contains only about 100 dry compounds of scorpions, spiders, ticks and other groups. In 1964 was the beginning of the establishment of the first mite collection with oribatid mites followed by the collections of spiders and harvest spiders (1971), predatory mites (1984), pseudoscorpions (1987), ticks (1994) and uropodid mites (1997). All parts of the collection are enlarged by sampling, purchase and acquisition of determined material.
