FIGURE 1a–e: Amphipod pictures from BOLD uploaded as reference with sequences. a) Hyperia Latreille in Desmarest, 1823 sequence (arrow) embedded in the BIN of Gammarus setosus Dementieva, 1931, at first glance a misidentification, but b) the uploaded photo of Hyperia sp. confirms the identification; most likely explanation is cross-contamination or tissue sample mix-up during handling; c) example of a too small photo of a specimen, which does not allow a confirmation of the identification, same applies for d) fragment of amphipod; e) six sequences of the same amphipod species sharing just two photos, these repeatedly used photos do not help to verify the identification.
