Bavarian State Collection of Zoology

Schnecken ZSM

and especially

The molluscan collection

houses an estimated 400,000 molluscan samples with approx. 2 million specimens collected from anywhere in the world during 200 years. Most samples refer to dry shells, but there is a rapidly growing “wet collection” of scientifically especially valuable, entire specimens stored in ethanol as well. Storage and preservation conditions are excellent.

Up to 50,000 species, half the known number of molluscs worldwide, may be represented.

Contrasting to other German research collections, our actual interest concentrates especially on marine molluscs. The recently established special collections of Antarctic (micro)molluscs, worldwide polyplacophorans and worldwide opisthobranchs are product of and subject to current research. T

hey already are amongst the most complete ones on a global scale.

For free.
The tour lasts 2 hours and will be led by a Bavarian State Collection staff scientist.
