Search by appearance

This module allows searching through all families. As search criteria, among others, body shape, color of the pronotum, elytra and legs can be used. It works best for colorful species, unicolored species are more difficult. It is mainly made for those users, who observed an eye-catching species and don't know, where to start their search. If you use this function for the first time, please take a few minutes to read the manual with a short description of the module and some hints on search strategy.
