Abstract
Despite advances that allow DNA sequencing of old museum specimens, sequencing small‐bodied, historical specimens can be challenging and unreliable as many contain only small amounts of fragmented DNA . Dependable methods to sequence such specimens are especially critical if the specimens are unique. We attempt to sequence small‐bodied (3–6 mm) historical specimens (including nomenclatural types) of beetles that have been housed, dried, in...
