The Zoologische Staatssammlung Muenchen (ZSM), Germany, possesses an historical value because is the depositary of important specimens that were used in the description of different species, especially from South America. Unfortunately, there is not available information about the mammals of Colombia housed at this collection. For this, 33 specimens from Colombia belonging to six orders, 14 genus, and 17 species were reviewed. Cranial and external measurements are given, as well as information of collectors and localities. Of these specimens, 23 were captured in Northern Colombia and imported to Germany to a pet store between 1954 and 1966. Due the dificulties to access to information of mammals from Colombia in European museums and collections, the information summarized here may be useful for people interested in these species.

La colección Zoologische Staatssammlung Muenchen (ZSM) en Alemania, posee un carácter histórico ya que alberga importantes ejemplares, especialmente de Suramérica, que fueron empleados para la descripción de diferentes especies. Desafortunadamente no existe información sobre los mamíferos de Colombia depositados en dicha colección. Por esto, un total de 33 especímenes procedentes de Colombia pertenecientes a seis órdenes, 14 géneros y 17 especies depositados en ZSM fueron revisados. Medidas craneales y externas son suministradas al igual que la información de los colectores y localidades. De dichos especímenes, 23 fueron capturados en el norte de Colombia e importados a Alemania hacia una tienda de mascotas entre 1954 y 1966. Teniendo en cuenta la diicultad de acceso a información sobre mamíferos de Colombia depositados en colecciones y museos europeos, la información resumida aquí puede ser útil para personas interesadas en estas especies.
