From Recordset

http://www.msb.unm.edu/parasites

The MSB Division of Parasitology maintains data on the host organisms of parasites in the MSB Parasite Collection. These are mostly observations rather than specimen records, and taxonomic determinations are often based upon the parasitologist's notation. Hosts with specimen vouchers in other Arctos collections are related to the records in those collections.
