Specimens from MNHN collections

For specimens from MNHN, the inventory number is mandatory in order to ensure that data are saved.
Examples: for the specimen MNHN-HA-4253-2, choose the collection code HA from the drop-down menu, then write the inventory number in the dedicated box, 4253-2 and click on "check and add". This check must be carried out for each specimen.

You cannot submit your project if the inventory number is incorrect or does not exist (please contact the responsible or manager of collection if the number is not valid).

Specimens external to the MNHN

No checks are made for these inventory numbers
