The Ichthyology Collection of the Texas Natural History Collections is part of The University of Texas at Austin and includes over 60,000 lots (with over 1,000,000 specimens), most of which are “wet” collections preserved in 70% ethanol occupying 1,586 square feet, spread out over two rooms. We have a small selection of larval fish from Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands maintained in 10% formalin and have just recently received over 1800 estimated new lots of larval samples from the Trinity River. Our skeletal collection contains 800 cleared and stained fish, as well as 425 dry skeletal preps. Many of the skeletal specimens originate from W. W. Dalquest and his students. We also have a tissue collection currently with over 1000 samples preserved in 100% ethanol frozen in liquid nitrogen. Our type collection includes 3 holotypes, 110 paratypes, and 1 allotype. Our holdings were collected between 1927 and present and there was a significant increase in collections during 1950–1980, mainly by Clark Hubbs and his students. In 1993 we acquired the collections of the University of Texas at Austin’s Marine Science Institute, totaling ~ 3,000 lots of ethanol preserved specimens from the Gulf of Mexico. Between 2000 and 2011 we acquired collections of ethanol preserved specimens from Midwestern University, Texas Tech University, Texas A&M University-Kingsville, The University of Texas at Brownsville and Lamar University. Our collection is rapidly growing and many of our incoming specimens come from Dean Hendrickson and his students, museum staff, Texas Parks and Wildlife, Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and various researchers.
