Myriapoda collection from Museu Nacional de História Natural e da Ciência da Universidade de Lisboa, Portugal

Latest version published by National Museum of Natural History and Science, University of Lisbon on Nov 7, 2019 National Museum of Natural History and Science, University of Lisbon

This dataset comprises the information on the Myriapoda collection (MYRC) of the National Museum of Natural History and Science, Lisbon, Portugal. The MYRC includes 56 records referring to specimens of the class Chilopoda and 29 of the class Diplopoda, collected in Guiné-Bissau, São Tomé e Príncipe, Brasil and, mostly in Portugal. Scientific data and studies on Portuguese Myriapoda are still very scarce, which renders some relevance to this collection. The taxonomy of this collection is incipient, with only 17 Chilopoda specimens identified to the species level: 6 belonging to Scolopendra cingulata Latreille, 1829; and 11 to Scolopendra cingulata Latreille, 1829. Nevertheless, the few identified species are regularly re-assessed to maintain the systematic information up to date. All the records have been georeferenced through GeoLocate in combination with GoogleMaps and the dataset has been checked for errors and incongruences through OpenRefine. The MYRC is carefully preserved and the associated data is all digitized (in DarwinCore format) according to rigorous international standards. The publication of this dataset on the GBIF platform aims to share the information contained in the MYRC in order to foster its access and use by specialists, and thus its valorisation and our collective knowledge on Myriapoda.

Este "dataset" integra a informação relativa à coleção Myriapoda (MYRC) do Museu Nacional de História Natural e Ciência, Lisboa, Portugal. A MYRC contém 56 recordes referentes a exemplares da Classe Chilopoda e 29 da Classe Diplopoda, colectados na Guiné-Bissau, São Tomé e Príncipe, Brasil e, maioritariamente em Portugal. Os estudos e dados científicos sobre Myriapoda em Portugal são ainda muito escassos o que dá alguma relevância a esta coleção. A cobertura taxonómica desta colecção é ainda incipiente, com apenas 17 specimens de Chilopoda identificados ao nível da espécie: 6 pertencentes a Scolopendra cingulata Latreille, 1829; e 11 a Scolopendra cingulata Latreille, 1829. No entanto, a informação sistemática destes especimens é regularmente reavaliada e actualizada quando necessário. A MYRC é cuidadosamente preservada e os dados associados estão todos informatizados (formato DarwinCore) de acordo com os mais rigorosos padrões internacionais. Todos os registos foram georreferenciados através do GeoLocate em combinação com o GoogleMaps, e todos os dados verificados através do OpenRefine com o intuito de eliminar erros e incongruências. A publicação deste conjunto de dados no portal do GBIF pretende partilhar as informações contidas na MYRC a fim de promover o seu acesso e uso por especialistas e, portanto, a sua valorização e o nosso conhecimento coletivo sobre Myriapoda.

Data Records

Study Extent .
Quality Control Specimens from this collection are carefully preserved and the associated data is all digitized (in a DwC format) according to rigorous international standards. The taxonomy of this collection is incipient and requires myriapoda systematic identification by experts. Nevertheless, the few identified species are regularly re-assessed to maintain the systematic information up to date. All the records have been geo-referenced through GeoLocate in combination with GoogleMaps and the dataset has been checked for errors and incongruences through OpenRefine.
