Natural History Photographs


The index provides a systematically organized access to photos of the species on this site. I aim for a phylogenetically valid classification; however, sometimes I found it necessary to compromise between phylogenetic rigor and usability. The names in the index files are scientific names, not common names such as Red Admiral, Brimstone or Lungwort. Since the search facility is built on the index files, you can only search on scientific names.

The numbers in parentheses is the number of species of the pertinent taxon you can here find photographs of. Species names in brown color refer to photos made in Australia. Species names in green color refer to photos of "extended phenotypes," mines and galls; more often than not, the insect itself doesn't show on the photo (e.g., species of the fly family Agromyzidae).
