Supervised by four natural history museums, Fauna Europaea is a taxonomic storehouse covering all of the continent's terrestrial and freshwater animals. It offers classification information and range maps for species such as the genet (Genetta genetta), a slinky cousin of the mongoose, and the parasitic flatworm Diplozoon paradoxum, which sups on the gills of fishes.
