Whether you are a keen herpetologist or just have a passing interest in Australia's diverse reptile and amphibian fauna, this field guide will be a useful addition to your mobile device. The data has been crowd sourced via the Gaia Guide website ( If you find errors or can improve species descriptions, please consider registering on the website and updating the field guide details. Additional photos are particularly welcome.

You are able to use the app for both identification in the field and the capture and reporting of your own sightings. If you register on the Gaia Guide website, your sightings can be uploaded to the server where they are passed on to the CSIRO's Atlas of Living Australia. From there, they are contributed to the Global Biodiversity Information Facility, contributing directly to knowledge of species distributions.
