Garden insect collection

Last update: 16 September 2022

Collected insects from the garden are added to the Garden insect collection. I rarely actively collect insects and most of the specimens collected are either found dead or nearly dead in which case I will kill them. Sometimes accidents happen during a photo session where a tool slips from my hand and wounds the specimen. In this case I will kill them as well and catalogue them as collected.

Articles concerning my garden insect collection are identified by the ‘Insecten collectie’ icon.

Articles about a species for which a speciment exists in the collection which is digitally represented in a collection article, are tagged with the ‘collectie exemplaar’ icon that functions as a link to the species collection category.
