Farlow Herbarium (Harvard University)

The Farlow Herbarium houses nearly 1,400,000 specimens of lichenized and non-lichenized fungi, bryophytes, and algae. The collections are world-wide in scope; particular strengths are in bound, indexed exsiccatae, bryophytes and fungi from Asia, entomogenous fungi, Antarctic lichens, and special "authors" herbaria which contain many type specimens.
