South Australian marine species lists
One of the popular features of the Marine Life Society of South Australia’s former website (prior to 2014) was its Photo Index of local species.
As of 2015, MLSSA has started developing a series of species lists which will ultimately feature images from the Photo Index collection.
The end result is intended to be an illustrated online guide to assist with species identification, and also provide a gateway for people to conveniently add sighting records to the Atlas of Living Australia. Currently, where available, images of listed species can be seen by clicking on the species’ name.
This page is a work in progress, and peer review is most welcome.
