The R.C. Dening Collection

wpe7E.jpg (2006 bytes)
Lepidoptera and Odonata collected by R.C. (Tim) Dening from all around the world throughout a lifetime of travel and natural history interest from 1930 to 2000. The collection, amounting to more than 70 cases, is now held in the Glasgow Museums Resource Centre, in Scotland. It features a  large number of Zambian butterflies and moths.

 

Butterflies
Case 32: Charaxes spp.

The names of the butterflies in the cases are listed beneath the pictures, with the country of collection under the name.

You can click on the pictures to go to a higher resolution image.

The numbers next to the names relate to the collector's original hand written notes. The numbers represent species/subspecies, rather than individual specimen numbers. You can access these original species notes by clicking on the underlined names. This will open a PDF document of the relevant page of notes. Locate the correct number on the page to access information on dates and places of collection of that particular species.

Explanations to help the reader to interpret the Collector's Notes are available here.
