Publications

NMSU Arthropod Museum specimens are regularly used for research on insect systematics and loaned to researchers from other institutions. In addition, the museum is a repository for voucher specimens used in scientific studies. Below is a list of selected publications (2004-present) that cite the use of the NMSU Arthropod Museum.
