The "unknown" private entomologists contributions to various museums across the world certainly must make up a great pool of material and data! The pretty unknown, private me, has contributed many more lepidoptera specimens from Palawan to the Copenhagen Natural History Museum than the lepidoptera collections made by such expeditions as the second Noona Dan expedition (1961-62). The same is true for my north Pakistan collections there.
the entomology is the study of insect by any way, any level. Stamp collection is doing this only (use a catalogue and put in his collection what is in the catalogue only without any consideration for the diversity, the new things, biology, etc.).I met this kind of collector, not only in insect. Their aim is not the love of insect but the collection itself.
"stamp collector" is not synonym of amateurs, lovers, photographs, etc. Strange to see how an expression, purely descriptive, can be derived.
