Taxonomy according to: www.faunaeur.org
This Phyllum unifies all living animals except Protozoa, from sponges to human beings. Out of ca. 1,500 000 animal species found worldwide 10 to 15 thousands are recorded for Georgia (one out of each 100 species found in the World). This is not too little taken into account that Georgia has small area and this is not a tropical country.
