Abstract: There has been little information concerning collections of Recent mammals in China. In order to gather data on the general situation of the mammalian collections of China, two surveys have been made to most of the institutions, museums and universities in the various provinces of China except Taiwan. As the result of the first survey during mid-1970s,a distributional list of specimens in the order of species deposited in the institutions colaborating in the compilation of the mammalian volumes of FAUNA SINICA was compiled and distributed. The second survey conducted recently reveals the existence of 35 collections containing at least 66,196 specimens. Nineteen of these collections are found to containing more than 500 specimens,occupying 95.9% of the whole amount of specimens in collections of Recent mammals in China, while two collections containing more than 10,000 specimens and three collections containing more than 5,000 specimens occupying 68.9% of the whole amount of specimens in collections of Recent mammals in China.These collections are listed in descending order of size in the following table ( Table 1 ) .
