Species Galleries

All the species in our galleries were seen and photographed in Leicestershire and Rutland. If you don't know which group to look at, the images below might help by showing a representative species from each category. About the Species Library

Note that it is not possible to identify every species from a photograph. Where confusion could occur we aim to point this out in the description. Images that that we think are likely to be that species but can't be 100% sure are surrounded by a pink box.

You can see how many species of each group are covered in our library by viewing the Species Count page.
