Collection[edit]

From the collection of Shintarō Hirase and much more valuable collection by his father Yoichirō Hirase have survived only about 30% with about 5000 specimen.[2] Majority of the collection was destroyed by incendiary bombs in the house of Shintarō Hirase[2] and in the Research Institute for Natural Resources in Tokyo during bombing of Tokyo.[2] The collection have been stored in the Research Institute for Natural Resources in Tokyo in 1948.[2]
