Freshwater Ostracods – Mark Angelos

Section Responsible for Processing



Mark Angelos, an engineer by profession, was a Research Associate in Crustacea ca. 2004 until 2006. He had a great fondness for freshwater ostracods and devoted his spare time to their identification. He had also participated in their collection was variously contracted by agencies to collect and identify them. He retired with the intent to return to the museum and continue working, but that did not happen. He left behind a large collection of identified material, CDs, and printouts. We are trying to read the CDs and get data to the google drive. Many of the lots have LACM CR numbers referenced. 28 June 2023 NDP and RW combed the LACM CR database yet again to find any of these numbers with hopefully more data. None of the CR numbers checked are contained in the LACM CR database.
