- National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution (USNM) Department of Invertebrate Zoology
- National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution (USNM), Washington, District of Columbia, USA. 35 million specimens of all 30 major non-insect invertebrate phyla. Specimens housed in both the main NMNH building and at the Museum Support Center. Primarily specimens in liquid at room temperature (alcohol, formalin). URL for collection: http://invertebrates.si.edu/index.htm
- All of the specimens in the type series of a species or infraspecific taxon other than the holotype (and, in botany, isotypes). Paratypes must have been at the disposition of the author at the time when the original description was created and must have been designated and indicated in the publication. Judgment must be exercised on paratype status, for only rarely are specimens explicitly cited as paratypes, but usually as "specimens examined," "other material seen", etc. [Zoo./Bot.]
- A list (concatenated and separated) of preparations and preservation methods for a specimen.
- recorded by
- A list (concatenated and separated) of names of people, groups, or organizations responsible for recording the original Occurrence. The primary collector or observer, especially one who applies a personal identifier (recordNumber), should be listed first.
- scientific name
- The full scientific name, with authorship and date information if known. When forming part of an Identification, this should be the name in lowest level taxonomic rank that can be determined. This term should not contain identification qualifications, which should instead be supplied in the IdentificationQualifier term.
- A related resource from which the described resource is derived.
- start day of year
- The earliest ordinal day of the year on which the Event occurred (1 for January 1, 365 for December 31, except in a leap year, in which case it is 366).
- state or province
- The name of the next smaller administrative region than country (state, province, canton, department, region, etc.) in which the Location occurs.
- type specimen repository
- The institution that holds a type specimen for a given species. The recommended best practice is to use the identifier in a collections registry such as the Biodiversity Collections Index (http://www.biodiversitycollectionsindex.org/).
- type status
- A list (concatenated and separated) of nomenclatural types (type status, typified scientific name, publication) applied to the subject.
- verbatim event date
- The verbatim original representation of the date and time information for an Event.
- water body
- The name of the water body in which the Location occurs.
- The four-digit year in which the Event occurred, according to the Common Era Calendar.
