The Frank F. Hasbrouck Insect Collection (new collection coden: ASUHIC [replacing previous coden: ASUT]) contains approximately 700,000 insect specimens, representing at least 25 orders, 390 families, 3,500 genera, 12,000 species and 1,240 subspecies. Most specimens are from the southwestern United States; however considerable representative material is also available from other North American regions and Mexico. The collection was largely developed through the activities of past faculty - Drs. Frank Hasbrouck (shown on the left in an ASU archive photograph), Gordon Castle and Mont Cazier - and their students (including William Warner). Ample work space and an extensive reprint collection are available to visiting researchers. For further information and to arrange a scientific visit or specimen loan, or to learn about our outreach materials and resources, please contact the Curator or Collection Manager.
