This will query BLR and overwrite any cached results. You probably do not want this.


Ocellus is a frontend to more than 150K images in the Biodiversity Literature Repository (BLR) on Zenodo. Ocellus depends on Zenodeo, a nodejs API to the Zenodo API, that performs a fulltext search on BLR. Start typing in the search field and Ocellus will suggest from > 5100 taxonomic familes, or provide any term and Ocellus will retrieve related images.

For copyright information in the images, please consult the original record on Zenodo, BLR policies, and the applicable laws of your country. The half-fish in the footer is based on the original of a Blunt-Nosed Minnow, Pimephales notatus (Rafinesque) ♂ from the Internet Archive and has no known copyright restrictions. Please contact Plazi for more information or to provide feedback.
