I am an Italian underwater naturalist photographer expert of identifications of Mediterranean's fishes and echinoderms.

I collaborate with the main naturalist sites like: www.fishbase.org, www.marinespecies.org, www.fish-watch.org, https://doris.ffessm.fr, www.naturamediterraneo.com .

Many my photos are used in marine life books, the main are "Guide d'identification des poissons marins Europe et Méditerranée (Patrick Louisy, 2015)" and "Atlante di flora e fauna del Mediterraneo (Egidio Trainito, 2011)".

I wrote an article to explain the identification's keys for Mediterranean's Astropecten:
