The non-insect invertebrate collection at Umass consists of a significant number of catalogued marine and a few terrestrial invertebrate specimens. These have not yet been computerized but are cataloged by card file. These collections include echinoderms, marine sponges, some cnidarians, some crustaceans, and a small number of urochordates, annelids, and mollusks (cephalopods and bivalves, mostly). A few other groups may be represented.
There is also a large collection of prepared slides, mostly of Parasites. Current priorities for this collection include computerizing the catalog and supplementing the under-represented groups in the teaching collection.
