Visits since October 2003
This site is aiming to be a field guide to the fauna of Israel. Although the name of the website it deals not only with insect
but also with others small forms of life. The main focus is Beetles, Butterflies, Moths and Molluscs (fresh water and land snails).
Other groups are also represented in lesser scale. I also present here a bit of worldwide species.
The site is being updtaed almost weekly with new species and up to date systematical changes as much as possible..
I hope you'll enjoy this site as much as I enjoy gathering the material for it.
