This page presents initial and preliminary identification results and serves as a platform for further discussion of taxonomic assignments. Preliminary identifications are made from images. In future, identifications will be supplemented by analyses of macroscopic/microscopic morphological details, indicated by [#], and/or of DNA species barcodes, indicated by [*]. Particularly preliminary assignments to species or genus level are indicated by ‘cf.’ (lat.: confer = ‘compare with’) on the respective individual images. (The names of the respective galleries do not reflect the degree of taxonomic assignment reliability.)

Identifications and confirmations of taxa of selected taxonomic groups by international experts. Participation in taxon identification and revision is welcome. The best way to refer to individual images is to right-click on the respective image and select ‘copy image link’ in the context menu. Such links can be used in a message to
