This is the personal research collection of Williams and Bunkley. In their publications paratypes were erected using this collection and the specimens were retained throughout their working career. Upon retirement, Williams and Bunkley gifted their entire voucher collection, paratypes included, to the NHM. The paratypes received LACM numbers and were entered into the MBC database.
