Cocos Island Kaiser & Kuck

Section Responsible for Processing



Specimens collected by Kirstie Kaiser, private collector and associate of the LACM Malacology department. Kirstie made several trips to islands in the eastern Pacific including Clipperton, often returning collections of shells and other invertebrates to the Museum. NHM benefited from several of these trips. She made one trip Hans G. Kuck to Cocos and this material was permanently gifted to the museum.
