Visiting Insect Collections

The following information is provided for those dipterists who wish to arrange visits to the nearby insect collections to study their flies, either before or after the congress. Delegates will need to make their own arrangements, but we provide some relevant information below. California has many collections within a reasonable distance of Reno, and several more if you will travel a little further. If you are planning such visits, we encourage you to start making arrangements with their collections managers and curators, as we expect their will likely be high demand and limited space. We list the collections here along with their website and the approximate distance from Reno by car.
