Entomology collection of the National Museum, Prague:  

About the collection:

The Orthoptera collection was built especially by two Czech Orthoptera specialists, J. Mařan and A. Čejchan, who accumulated the material especially from the Czech and Slovak Republics, Balkan Penninsula and Near East.
The collection contains many types of the taxa described by Mařan and Čejchan, and also a huge number of unprepared and unidentified Orthoptera material which may be very valuable for future studies.

Cooperating persons:

As I am not the Orthoptera specialist, the work with the collection would be impossible without a kind help of the cooperating specialists. I highly appreciate their help:

Petr Kočárek (Ostrava University)
Pavel Marhoul (AOPK Praha)
