Museo Nacional de Costa Rica, observation-based (CR)

Founded in 1887. The former INB collections are still housed in the same building in Santo Domingo de Heredia where they have been for the last few years (see INB for the exact location), but are now administered by the Museo Nacional. Specimens from INB should now be cited as CR. A database and type photographs are available here:
