The collection comprises dry and preserved (in alcohol 70%) specimens. There are specimens from several Brazilian regions (Southeast, North and Northeast), and others localities, such as Antarctica. The collection consists of donated material mainly by Drs. Woodruff W. Benson, Pierre C.J. Montouchet and Flávio Dias Passos from UNICAMP.
