Found a strange insect in your garden, an unusual plant in the park or a fossil on the beach? You can get help identifying it here.

Whether you are an amateur naturalist, an expert or just curious, you can ask – or help answer – all sorts of questions about the UK’s biodiversity and our team of Museum scientists are online to help.

As well as uploading a photograph, please tell us where you found your specimen. If possible please comment on its size, or include a scale, such as a ruler or a coin, in the photograph.

Visit the Natural History Museum website for other ways we can help identify something you have found.
