Rutgers University Entomological Museum (RUAC_ENT)

The Rutgers University Entomological Museum (RUEM) is home to over 200,000 specimens, one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of New Jersey insects in the world. The collection dates back to the late 1880s and was developed by both entomologists and citizen scientists. Much of the collection is from areas of agriculture that no longer exist due to development in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States.
