Strohecker Endomychidae Collection
Florida State Collection of Arthropods
This gallery is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Henry Frederick Strohecker, the most influential endomychid taxonomist of the 20th century. A brief biography is available by clicking on his picture or by clicking here. His Genera Insectorum (1953) dealing with the Endomychidae still represents the most complete treatment of the family to date. Prior to his death, Strohecker donated his research collection to the Florida State Collection of Arthropods, where it is currently housed and maintained. This photographic archive includes representatives of every species in his collection, including type specimens, and Strohecker's taxonomic organization has been maintained as it is in the collection.
The list below is organized according to subfamily ( sensu Strohecker) and alphabetically by genus. Clicking on a genus will take you to a page showing images of every species contained in that genus and present in Strohecker's collection, including polymorphs of some species. Current taxonomic placement has been included in parentheses to aid in the use of the guide. At the bottom is a link to a display of Strohecker's types housed at the FSCA.
Support for this project was provided by the Center for Systematic Entomology at the FSCA and through funding from NSF PEET grant DEB-0329115 to J.V. McHugh, M.F. Whiting, and K.B. Miller.
