The collections of the section of Coleoptera comprise mainly material from the Palaearctic region, northeastern Oriental region (Fukien) and the Aethiopian region. Research includes projects on taxonomy, phylogenetics, functional morphology, structural analysis, and history of science.
The entire collection is made up of almost 2 million specimens, of which a large part comes from not yet adequately revised private collections.
The collection manager works together with all six arthropod collections.
