About "The Lichen Collection at the Botanische Staatssammlung München"



The Collection

M-0102430 specimen M-0102430 label The Lichen Collection at the SNSB – Botanische Staatssammlung München (M) comprises more than 350,000 herbarium specimens from almost every country all over the world. Among the oldest specimens are those collected by Johann Christian Daniel von Schreber before 1771 with Lichen radiatus Schreb., now Cladonia subulata (L.) Weber ex F. H. Wigg. as an example. The collection includes around 7,500 type specimens and material from a number of famous collectors. More than 120,000 specimens were collected by Ferdinand Christian Gustav Arnold mainly in Bavaria (Germany) and the Alps and came to M as part of his Herbarium. F. Arnold also received a lot of material from colleagues worldwide. The collection of August von Krempelhuber with about 20,000 specimens represents another precious part of the Lichen Collection at M.
