Pycnogonida collection from the 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 Apr 5, 2019 National Museum of Natural History and Science, University of Lisbon

This dataset comprises the information on the Pycnogonida collection (PYC) of the National Museum of Natural History and Science, Lisbon, Portugal. The PYC holds 119 records comprising 12 species distributed along the Portuguese coast. The information and sampling on Portuguese Pycnogonida is still very limited, which increases the value of this collection. The taxonomy of the PYC was extensively reviewed by Tomás Munilla in 2008, and since then regular re-assessments have been carried out to maintain the systematic information up to date. The PYC is carefully preserved and the associated data is all digitized. All records have been geo-referenced through GeoLocate and the dataset has been checked for errors and incongruences through OpenRefine. The publication of this dataset in the GBIF platform intends to share the information contained in the PYC of the National Museum of Natural History and Science, Lisbon, Portugal, in order to foster its access and use by specialists, and thus increasing our collective knowledge on Pycnogonids.

Este "dataset" compreende informação relativa à coleção Pycnogonida (CPY) do Museu Nacional de História Natural e Ciência, Lisboa, Portugal. A CPY contém 119 registos, referentes a 12 espécies distribuídas ao longo da costa portuguesa. A informação e amostragem de Pycnogonida em Portugal é ainda muito limitada o que aumenta o valor desta colecção. A taxonomia da CPY foi amplamente revista por Tomás Munilla em 2008 e desde então foram efectuadas revisões regulares de forma a manter a informação sistemática atualizada. A CPY é cuidadosamente preservada e os dados associados estão todos informatizados. Todos os registros foram georreferenciados através do GeoLocate e a base de dados de Pycnogonida foi verificada 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 CPY do Museu Nacional de História Natural e Ciência, Lisboa, Portugal, a fim de promover o seu acesso e uso por especialistas e aumentar assim o nosso conhecimento coletivo sobre Pycnogonida.
