Apterygota

The “apterygote” orders are, in general, poorly represented in our collection. We have only a small number of vials among the alcoholic series, and the most extensive representation is in the Collembola, where we have a little over 100 microscope slide mounts of springtails, mostly voucher specimens from a study by S.K. Gilmore on the feeding behavior and nutrition of nematodefeeding collembolans. Recent Hawaiian surveys have resulted in collections of native Hawaiian archeognathans and diplurans.
