The Marine Crustacean Collection (CRUST-IEOCD), in turn made up of two sub-collections: 1) Collection of Decapod and Stomatopod Crustaceans (CCDE-IEOCD) and 2) Collection of Other Crustaceans (OCRUST-IEOCD). The CCDE-IEOCD sub-collection arose from the need to identify specimens of crustaceans from campaigns carried out by the IEO in African waters. Since 2005 specimens began to be collected, with 2011 being the year in which an exhaustive taxonomic review was carried out, from which the collection was officially created. It currently has 5,570 specimens cataloged and made available to Gbif. These are mostly specimens from trawling surveys carried out by the IEO in African waters off Morocco, Mauritania, Senegal, Gambia, Guinea-Bissau, Guinea, Equatorial Guinea, Namibia and Mozambique, other surveys carried out in Spanish waters of the Gulf of Cadiz or Cantabrian Sea, or in the Bank of Porcupine (Ireland). It also houses specimens from the 1950s, donated by the Andalusian Institute of Marine Sciences (ICMAN-CSIC). The OCRUST-IEOCD sub-collection is a recently created collection, with the aim of expanding the COCAD collection to other crustaceans, such as Amphipods, Isopods, Tanaidaceans, etc. Data from this collection has not yet been made available in Gbif. In addition, it is intended to have a molecular database (DNA barcode) of all the species deposited in the CRUST-IEOCD, as well as the storage of all the voucher specimens used for the codifications.
