Brief description

This dataset is the current total holdings of all Diptera - Dixidae primary type specimens held at the Australian National Insect Collection.
ANIC is the World’s largest repository of Australian type specimens, currently holding about 19,000 primary types, which are the basis of every species description and the ultimate reference for species identification. Primary types are globally recognised as being the most valuable specimens of any collection, because they form the scientific basis of taxonomy, ensure stability of species names and are irreplaceable.
Digitising the irreplaceable primary type specimens will not only greatly benefit their curation and long-term safety but will also leverage biodiversity research outcomes of in-house and overseas researchers and facilitate reliable identification of native species and biosecurity threats.
