University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC-UTCI)

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Insect collection started in 1970 with Dr. Charles Nelson, a Plecoptera expert. For several years it grew into an extensive teaching collection with representative of most insect families found in the Southeastern USA. In 2008, Dr. Stylianos Chatzimanolis initiated the Coleoptera collection, which is fully curated and databased. The main focus of the Coleoptera collection is the Southeastern USA but several other countries are represented.
