Notes:

As of the 11th of March 2014 in the Grant Museum all material labelled ‘Challenger’ has been grouped under the subcollection HMS Challenger Expedition assuming that Challenger refers to the 1872-1876 scientific expedition. It is unknown if these specimens came to the Grant Museum at one time or if there was a number of specimens that came to the museum over a period of years.
