About This Search Engine
There is no need to use a wildcard character, nor to worry about capitalization. Simply enter the text string that you want to use, then hit the Search Button.
NOTE: A few specimen photos have been disabled because they contain rare species locality information. You will get an XML error message when you try to view the images of these.
The database is generated through Optical Character Recognition (OCR), hence some characters will not be recorded correctly, especially on handwritten labels. The shorter the string that you search for, the more likely you are to get all of the records that meet your criteria.
For more information please contact Curator of the Herbarium.
