See below for a collection of related websites, covering identification and photographic techniques.

IDENTIFICATION

General Reference

Encyclopedia of life

All the images on this website are also accessible via “EOL”, a project to produce an online reference encyclopedia of all known/named species on planet. A useful website for checking pictures and other information such as distribution, synonyms etc.

Arkive

A british equivalent to EOL, focusing primarily on endangered species. The photos on the website are more artistically composed than EOL, aimed at high impact, rather than scientific value.

 

Beetles (Coleoptera)

coleoptera.org

A useful website for looking up information on any of the 4000+ species of beetle in Britain and Ireland.

 

TECHNIQUES

Heliconfocus

The software developer (HeliconSoft) website for the image stacking program used to create most of the images on this website. Contains a lot of information not just about their products, but about techniques and equipment as well.
