Description The concept of non-arthropod invertebrates has no biological meaning but responds rather to the traditional organizational needs of museums and academic institutions. The museum's non-arthropod invertebrates department holds about 100,000 samples. These samples cover a wide biological range that includes many zoological groups of highly diverse evolutionary history, such as sponges, corals, mollusks, worms of all kinds, starfish, jellyfish and sea urchins, to name but a few. The most widely represented group in the collection is mollusks, with more than 85,000 samples.

The collection contains samples of 16 zoological phyla (singular, phylum, the primary division of a taxonomic kingdom) according to taxonomy and scientific nomenclature.
