The Australian National Insect Collection (ANIC) Taxon Database holds a wide range of information relating to insects and related animals from Australia and the Australian region. Content for the database has been contributed by ANIC staff as well as researchers world-wide. This information is the direct result of taxonomic and biological research projects as well as general curation of the collection.

Core funding for this project has been provided by the following agencies. This project would not have been possible without their support.
