An educational resource dedicated mainly to the photography
and diversity of marine life that can be found in coastal waters
and intertidal areas of Great Britain and Ireland by David Fenwick.

Four specimens were found in grit / sand composed mostly of barnacle plates and organic debris, in the littoral zone close to mean low water mark. The species was found in sediment samples taken right at the foot of the pillar of Brunel's railway bridge at Saltash, Cornwall, 17.02.18. The sediment samples were collected and cleaned using nothing more than a a cheap plastic kitchen sieve.

Specimens were found live, and were found floating on the surface of seawater covering the sediment sample. Two were placed in 100% ethanol for scientific study as this species is not common and very under-recorded.

The species was first found in offshore shell gravels near the Eddystone Reef in 1959, and is regarded an interstitial species.
Care must be taken on looking at samples that may contain this species, it could easily be mistaken for juveniles of the caprellid amhipod Phtisica marina.

The order Ingolfiellida was until recently a suborder of Amphipoda, Ingolfiellidea.

APHOTOMARINE supports open source data recording and sharing for the benefit of wildlife, recorders, research, science and education. The project recommends the following websites and works with the following bodies and organisations.

Marine Biological Association MBA

The Marine Biological Association or MBA, based in Plymouth, is one of the world’s longest-running societies dedicated to promoting research into our oceans and the life they support. Since 1884 the MBA has been providing a unified, clear, independent voice on behalf of the marine biological community.It has a growing membership in over 40 countries.

NBN National Biodiversity Network

The National Biodiversity Network or NBN is a charity that supports open source data sharing and recording supporting conservation, science and education. "Why do recorders need open source?". Simply because it supports the core values of wildlife recording and the free use of records and data over a very wide network that includes partners like the Natural History Museum.

The taxonomy used here is based on that of the following database, which is also used by the MBA, NHM and the NBN.

World Register of Marine Species or WoRMS

The main objective of this website is in furthering environmental awareness and education through the medium of photography. To increase awareness and access to the wildlife of the region and help
people find and identify it. Sometimes the difference between species is obvious but many species can only be determined by observing microscopic characteristics that are specific to any one species.
