True bugs (Heteroptera)

The collection of true bugs comprises ca. 37.000 specimens that were recently rearranged and databased on species -level. Almost half of the material comes from the collection of E. E. Wolfram. More than 8.500 specimens from the state of Baden-Württemberg were revised by R. Heckmann and their data were published in a supplement of the journal carolinea in 1996.
