The North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences' Invertebrate Paleontology Collection contains approximately 56,000+ specimens (11,000+ lots). Founded in the late 1800s, the collection consists of approximately 80% North Carolina material, although 40 states, 39 countries, and more than 1400 species are represented. The Invertebrate Paleontology Collection currently contains 17 holotype and 54 paratype specimens, a representative North Carolina and Southeast regional collection of Cenozoic and Mesozoic molluscan, echinoderm and crustacean fossils, along with a small but significant collection of Ediacaran body and trace fossils from south central North Carolina. The Invertebrate Paleontology Collection houses individual specimens, slabs containing multiple specimens, microfossils, matrix samples, and all supporting legacy data.
