Bumblebee and Butterfly Identification Training Tool

Welcome to our species identification training tool. Watch the introductory video tutorial below and then try the tool by clicking on a button on the right.

If you are coming from our Openlearn Create course, you can simply click on the start session button. Otherwise, use the guest session button to try out the tool, or sign up to access the full functionality.

You will see a series of photos that you can practise identifying to species level using our interactive feature keys, with help from artificial intelligence technologies, including automated image recognition and automatically generated feedback on your attempts.

You can do as many photos as you wish in a session, switch between difficulty levels, and (if you have signed up) return where you left off when you login again.

We hope it helps increase your confidence in identifying the bumblebees and butterflies you see outdoors, so you can impress friends and family and continue your journey towards becoming a citizen scientist!
