After a long silence we start uploading again photos on www.poppe-images.com.

There are 46 622 photos from marine life of the Philippines today. 4500 photos will be uploaded in the coming weeks and over 10 000 are in processing stage. Please visit.

We need help for corrections on many groups as we are experts in mollusks only (but that concerns 56000 marine species - of which about 5000 are living in front of my house here and we discovered over 2000 new species in the last 6 years. Expected are 12000 species for the Philippines in the short term future). Of the newly discovered ones we could describe and let describe about 250 in the latest two years, looking for funding also in order to proceed fast with the description of the 1800 undescribed ones waiting in drawers. Contact us if interested in this project.

New site in the same format as Fishbase:


They could probably use some photos, if you're feeling generous

  • Species ID Cards generation service is a free service, as long as you are a registered user.

  • The main goal of this service is to ease the identification of the species, by crossreferencing the species database of Skaphandrus using the photographs uploaded by our users.

  • The process of generating these ID Cards is totally flexible by our users, where they can define different criteria (explained below) for Cards generation.

  • You can generate the species ID Cards by uploading and using your own photos.
