Aquatic Macroinvertebrate Prototype and Legacy NEON Samples (NEON-OPAL-AM)

This collection contains a number of samples distributed across several sample types of Aquatic Macroinvertebrates. These samples lack proper labels and individual identifiers on them and were thus unable to be properly accessioned into their collections. However, the associated sample data were available and are published here. The samples are available as batch units of slides and vials of ethanol preserved specimens, but it may not always be possible to reconcile physical samples with the available metadata.
