Inspection of selected type material

The workshop will take place on 3 August 2018 at the Zoological Museum, Natural History Museum of Copenhagen, which is situated next to the main symposium venue.

The Museum holds the world’s most comprehensive collection of marine Eutardigrada and Heterotardigrada, as well as a nearly complete collection of Eohypsibioidea and many diverse examples of Echiniscidae.

In addition, the type material of the G. Thulin, B. Petersen, and H. Dastych collections are preserved at the Museum. The workshop will present an opportunity for attendees to access these collections, to engage in a peer discussion of specimens, and to share any newly described taxa, which any attending authors are encouraged to bring to introduce to the group.

A list of available specimens can be found here.
