University of Louisiana at Lafayette Zoological Collection (ULLZ)

The University of Louisiana at Lafayette's Zoological Collection (ULLZ) has more than 15,200 catalogued lots of decapod crustaceans. Most of these lots were preserved directly in ethanol, making them suitable for genetic analyses and a large percentage were photographed prior to preservation.

Although the onsite data management is accomplished through a custom FileMaker Pro database, it is impractical to make all of the associated data available online at this time. A reduced version (i.e. all records but a reduced amount of associated data) is available for download as an Excel spreadsheet (XLSX - 1.1mb) and and Comma-separated value file(CSV - 2.7mb).

If you need any additional information or would prefer to view the information in a different format, please let us know.
