Welcome to the Image Gallery
Click on one of the thumbnails below to access the
Gallery of New
Zealand soil and litter invertebrates.
The majority of the animals featured in the Gallery were photographed live in the field. Each photograph caption describes the place and the habitat where we found the animal, its scientific name (if available), and whether it is introduced or native to New Zealand. If we know that the animal is unique to New Zealand (not found anywhere else), it is marked as "endemic to NZ ", but many animals marked as "native" are probably also endemic. Each image is identified by a unique file name - please use
it as a reference if contacting us with any questions about
a particular image. Many
of New Zealand soil invertebrate groups are poorly studied,
and identification keys to species and genera are not always
available. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
if you recognize any of the unnamed species in the Gallery,
or if you detect any errors.
All images in the Gallery are protected by the copyright
relating to image files, please contact Dr. Maria Minor or
Dr. Alastair Robertson at email@example.com.
