Entomology Internship

The Gulf Fritillary
Agraulis vanillae (“Gulf Fritillary”) is a common species in Georgia.  This one particular specimen was collected in North Carolina in 1870.  It is one of the oldest specimens in the UGCA.


The University of Georgia Collection of Arthropods (UGCA) serves as the official state repository of insects and other non-marine arthropods. The Collection is part of the Entomology Department and is located on campus at the Georgia Museum of Natural History. Dr. Joseph McHugh, Curator, and Rick Hoebeke, Associate Curator & Collection Manager, typically accept 1-3 student interns each semester for ENTO 4261 (Museum of Natural History Internship).
