The UF Invertebrate collection holds ~580,000 databased lots of mollusks and marine invertebrates. It began as a Malacology collection almost 100 years ago and the collection is particularly strong in non-marine mollusks. Approximately ~85% of the holdings are mollusks but since 2000 the collection was expanded to cover all invertebrate phyla, focusing on marine taxa. Today it holds >40,000 species from 28 phyla and is currently available via the Integrated Publishing Toolkit and the Global Biodiversity Information Facility. However, this is a subset of that data prepared for ingest by OBIS. This means that only records with geographic coordinates (lat/lon), scientific names that matched to the World Register of Marine Species, event date and not found on land were included in the subset.
