Collectors:Henri Fayol Collection dates:1880-1890
Collection method comments: Collected by Fayol (mining engineer and later director at Compagnie de Commentry-Fourchambeau-Decazeville) collected during his early study on the stratigraphy and sediments of the Commentry coal basin. All insects are at the Institute de Paleontologie in the Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle, Paris.
