The Scientific Collection of harvestmen from the Museum of Natural History of the Federal University of Bahia (MHNBA) had its first record in December 1985, from the collection of 1 specimens from the region of the UFBA University Campus, in Ondina, municipality of Salvador, Bahia. The collection was stopped during the following years and only restarted recently, in 2022. It is a small collection, where only 38 lots from localities in the states of Bahia, Mato Grosso and Sergipe are listed, with data organized in an Excel spreadsheet. With the exception of the type species Metarthrodes oxum, none of the lots is identified at a
taxonomic level other than order.
