WoRMS – World List of Marine Species

This extensive site provides an authoritative and comprehensive list of names of marine organisms (and, more recently, has been expanded to   to also include freshwater taxa), including information on synonymy. While the highest priority goes to valid names, other names in use are included so that this register can serve as a guide to interpret taxonomic literature. [read more about WoRMS, HERE].
