Phil Tates donated beetle collection
Through the effort and generosity of Denver resident Laurie Zeller, DMNS received a spectacular donation today. Phil Tates of New York donated his collection of 3,189 beetles from all over the world that had resided in Laurie's home for some time. The collection contains material from exotic places like India, Brazil, the Bronx and, really, North Korea. Not too many US institutions own material from that part of the world. We are excited about this donation and will present the prettiest and interesting specimens as "Zoology Objects of the Week".
