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).
