Species of Interest

Many regions of Minnesota are so under-surveyed that every species could be on this list, but in light of what has been found recently in the field and what we have found in older specimens in museum collections we have come up with a list of “Minnesota’s Most Wanted” species. These species are known from a single specimen in Minnesota or they are not being reported from areas that we expect to find them or they occur in small populations in remote regions or there is an historical record, but nothing has been reported in modern times.
