Richard Holland Butterfly Collection donated to Colorado State University
On the weekend of October 4th & 5th , I drove with Dr. Boris Kondratieff from Fort Collins, Colorado to Albuquerque, New Mexico in order to receive a major portion of the Southwestern Butterfly Collection of Dr. Richard W. Holland. This collection is especially rich in samples from throughout New Mexico and northwestern New Mexico. It is probably the most valuable survey of New Mexican species. The collection will be an important addition to the C.P. Gillette Museum of Arthropod Diversity in Colorado State University's Department of Bioagricultural Sciences and Pest Management.
