Collection: He left material in many places, certainly MHNG has plenty of specimens from Java with his labels. As well as the non-insect works mentioned by Hauser, Zehntner was second author of Saussures treatment of Cockroaches for Biologia Centrali-Americana, and that is perhaps the explaination of the "S.Z." acronym. Arbeitete in Java und Brasilien, sammelte in 1906 in Sri Lanka (einige Exemplare befinden sich im Geneva Museum, Schweiz)
