Photographs of invertebrates

These photographs are organised (rather pretentiously, perhaps) by phylum, class, order and family, and then identified by genus and species where known to me with at least moderate certainty.

Unless otherwise noted, these photographs were taken using a Sony DSC-F707 or DSC-H5 camera. Close-up lenses used include a set of Hoya lenses (+4, +2 and +1) and a reversed Yashica 50-mm lens.
