Bibliography and index of catalogues of type, figured, and cited fossils in museums in Britain
Published (and some unpublished) information on the distribution of type, figured, and cited fossils in museums in Great Britain and Ireland is collated in a bibliography as an initial aid in tracing type collections and individual specimens. The catalogues are indexed taxonomically, stratigraphically, and by museums. A supplementary reference list draws attention to some further publications which may be useful in locating old collections.

GB/3D Type Fossils Online
