Hello all,

I’ve made a list of books and websites which I think can be helpful for identifying non-insect invertebrate species from the Guianas. To increase the usefulness of the list I’ve added some short descriptions. If you have additions or other remarks (like if you notice dead links or spelling errors), please post them as a reply to this message and I will include them in this list when I've got time. :)
