Description: The board above is a selection of 27 aquatic species from the series '' 100 species of Brazilian fauna '', a research project created by Vannie Gama on Brazilian fauna, carried out between April and November 2020 in the city of Jaguariuna, Brazil, during the quarantine of COVID-19. The series represents both recently cataloged species, endemic and endangered species. Based on hundreds of articles and books on biology and species cataloging, the series was mainly motivated due to the burning and environmental issues faced by the country in 2020. About 18 species in the catalog are the first illustrations to be made in Brazil, such as the species b), e), f), j), q) w) and x) of the selection shown above.
