Small orders

Apterigota. The collection contains unique slides of Protura from Israel and Africa from the collection of M. Broza (Haifa University, Oranim); Collembola preserved on slides and in alcohol, particularly the collection of R. Ortal (Nature Reserves Authority) determined by A. Palissa (Berlin); Diplura and Thysanura preserved in alcohol, mainly collected by J. Wahrman, M. Pener and J. L. Werner (the Hebrew University).

Ephemeroptera. The collection contains ca. 40 jars with imago and larvae of mayflies preserved in alcohol, determined predominantly to family or genus level. It also houses several primary types of species described from Israel.

Odonata. The collection contains ca. 4,000 specimens of 82 species in 36 genera of Israeli dragonflies and damselflies and several dozen undetermined tropical species. The material includes rare species of dragonflies and damselflies of Afrotropical origin, being in Israel at the northernmost edge of their distribution; as well as unique specimens of Urothemis edwardsi hulae (described from Israel) and Rhyothemis semihialina syriaca, which became extinct following the drainage of Lake Hula.

Plecoptera. Stone flies are strongly associated with water, and thus are restricted to the relatively humid extreme north of Israel. The collection contains ca. 50 pinned specimens and several alcohol-preserved lots of five species in four genera.

Dermaptera. The collection contains ca. 1,000 pinned specimens of earwigs belonging to nine species in five genera.

Embioptera. The collection contains ca. 200 specimens belonging to four species in three genera.

Psocoptera. The collection contains ca. a dozen species from Israel, preserved in alcohol, mainly from the collection of J. Halperin.

Mecoptera. This small order is not represented in Israel. However, the collection contains ca. 10 specimens of the genus Bittacus (Africa, America) and ca. 50 specimens of the genus Panorpa (Europe, Japan, Thailand).

Trichoptera. The collection contains ca. 60 species of caddis flies, ca. 1,500 pinned specimens and thousands of specimens preserved in alcohol (ca. 80 jars), and includes several primary types of species described from Israel.  

Siphonaptera. The collection contains ca. 3,000 slides of fleas in three small cabinets. This is one of the most enigmatic collections in TAU, as nobody has opened the cabinets since they arrived.
