Collections of oniscidean isopods referred to by Budde-Lund

In connection with publication of a catalogue of (mainly) oniscidean
isopods described by Gustav Budde-Lund (1846-1911), to be published in
Steenstrupia, here, the author has listed 23 museums holding type
material but was unable to locate nine collections (see list below)
referred to by Budde-Lund.  Any suggestions or additional information,
e.g., city, country, fate of collections if known, etc., would be
greatly appreciated.  Please reply to me DIRECTLY, as I am a
polychaetologist and not subscribed to CRUST-L.

The following nine collections referred to by Budde-Lund were not

Barreto Collection
Brusima Collection
Dollfus Collection Germany
Keitel Collection
Marburg, Germany
Ortoneda Collection
Ray Collection
Simon Collection
Uljanini Museum

Thanks in advance for any help.
