Data from: DNA barcodes from century-old type specimens using next generation sequencing

Sean W. J. Prosser, Jeremy R. DeWaard, Scott E. Miller & Paul D. N. Hebert
Type specimens have high scientific importance because they provide the only certain connection between the application of a Linnean name and a physical specimen. Many other individuals may have been identified as a particular species, but their linkage to the taxon concept is inferential. Because type specimens are often more than a century old and have experienced conditions unfavorable for DNA preservation, success in sequence recovery has been uncertain. The present study addresses this challenge...
