The Burtonmore Herbarium
Index by scientific name
This list is a list of specimens, virtual or actual, within the Burtonmore Herbarium. In general, it is selective for those I have seen or collected, mostly in Worcester County, but also elsewhere in Massachusetts, with a few exotics and palaeontological specimens.

If a name is preceded by a symbol (Φ, λ, or Δ), clicking the symbol will bring up an illustrated page for that species,
with site and observation information, links for other illustrations, and further reference.
The λ indicates a link within another species’s page; ω links to an ornamental listing—these are presented by location.
Those species for which I have included illustrations from original sources, many of them pre-Linnean, are prefixed with the symbol Δ.
