The Cornell University Insect Collection serves as a permanent repository for scientifically valuable terrestrial arthropod specimens and associated data representing global insect diversity, species of economic importance, and vouchers from scientific studies. The CUIC supports insect identification, systematics research, education, and public outreach for the global community.
