Identification home

Unidentified media are photos and videos where the precision of identification can be improved. For example, a photo identified to the Genus level but that could possibly be identified to the Species level. Or it could also be an image identified to the Family level when in fact it could be identified to the Genus or to the species level.

A very special page in Sealife Collection project. It shows images of taxa not yet described by science. These species don’t have a binomial name yet, but usually have a proposed Genus and reference value afterwards.
The cryptics page is where you will find those taxa that cannot be identified to the species level (or less precisely) based only on photographic evidence. Many species can only be identified by genetic analysis or after inspecting some internal anatomical characteristic.
