Collection of invertebrates

Curator: dr Marko G. Karaman
museum adviser

The Collection of Invertebrates was formed in 1996. Around 2000 specimens of Myriapoda, Annelida, Araneae, Scorpiones, Pseudoscorpiones, Crustacea, Gastropoda, Opiliones and Isopoda have been collected so far.
A significant part of the Collection of Invertebrates are the specimens from subterranean habitats including caves (Opiliones, Isopoda, Amphipoda and other animal groups). This material is mainly in the stage of treatment, and part of it has been determined by the associates from other natural history institutions. Among the cave and androgenic samples in Montenegro, a series of new species for science has been established as holotypes and will be soon deposited in the Collection of Invertebrates of Natural History Museum.
