Feature Expedition

Kuehn Lepidoptera Collections Expedition 5

SpecimensMilwaukee Public Museum

The Milwaukee Public Museum holds a diverse and comprehensive collection of insects from around the world. This expedition includes the both Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths) and other species of insect specimens collected and donated by amatuer entomologist Roger Kuehn who, over 40 years, amassed and documented nearly 2,000 specimens throughout Wisconsin and beyond. Making the data from his outstanding efforts digitized and accessible will help his life's work contribute to protecting the species he loved.  Please see our tutorial for help interpreting the labels. Thank you for helping us transcribe our labels!
