The identification is made via the images of the species lists which you can restrict using the "Search + Filter" function.

Quick Search
Text search by name, scientific name and group in the currently displayed list.

[ Search + Filter ]
Use only a part of composite names for the text search, since there are often different spellings.

Do not use too many criteria together, which often produces unusable results. Choose only a few clear criteria that you can extend step by step if necessary. Also try to change your defined criteria, as these are not always clear. For example, colour, shape and drawing can vary or the classification can be subjective. You can report us wrongly classified criteria via "Improve entry".

The leaf-arrangement and leaf-shape usually refers to the upper leaves. Unless there are only basal leaves. With pinnated leaves, it is not the leaflets that are decisive, but always the whole leaves.

With many small, densely arranged individual flowers you should also look under panicles or ears-like and vice versa when large flowers are in panicles etc.

The size refers to the maximum achievable size of a species. Individuals can also be smaller. This should be taken into account when searching for size.

When using the search filters for fruits, traces, clutches, larvae and caterpillars, please note that all other search criteria refer to the adult form or the plant itself.

Species can be temporarily marked for later research or as favorites using the heart symbol on the detailed description. These lists can be lost when you update or delete the application data.

The warning symbol only indicates you to check this species for possible dangers in the description and other technical literature. A missing warning symbol does not indicate that a species is edible or harmless.

Available animal voices can be played via the sound symbol. If necessary, increase the volume for media.
