A visual identification key has been added to our web. The goal is to help users to reach a minimum identification for their photos and reduce the amount of unidentified media. A simple drawing represents the basic underwater animal groups where users can associate a crab for example to the correct group, the Decapoda. Most users will readily identify a Lobster, and Octopus, a Snail or a Sponge, but often they cannot match them to their correct groups, Decapoda, Cephalopoda, Gastropoda and Porifera. This guide makes this correspondence very simple and visual.
This is a first step to help contributors refine their identification skills, and we hope to keep adding more keys in the near future.
