Abstract

In 2019 the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery in Launceston received a donation of one of Australia’s largest and most significant private butterfly collections. The Lambkin-Knight collection, containing around 12,000 Australian including Tasmanian specimens, provides an invaluable reference point for butterfly identification, distribution and climate-change related research and has already resulted in over 30 scientific publications.
