Beyond Good and Evil
Photography FAQ
Written by James Williamson

This guide focuses exclusively on the photographs that you take for the 
Science Center. It is not a walkthrough.  If my instructions for a particular 
animal are not entirely clear, then e-mail me for further information.  This 
is not a walkthrough, and I will not answer any questions relating to game 
objectives, puzzles, etc. 

	Photography Checklist

1. Adalia Octopunctata
Location: When you pick up the Camera at the beginning of the game, you will 
automatically focus on this hornbilled insect.  Zoom in and take a picture.

2. Homo Sapiens
Location: Look for either Pablo, Kip, Zaza, or Yoa wandering around Lighthouse 

3. Capra Sapiens
Location: Look for either Fehn or Cumi on Lighthouse Island. 

4. Sus Sapiens
Location: Take a picture of Pey'j.  

5. Canis Canis 
Location: In the Lighthouse, go upstairs and take a picture of the large dog 
sleeping in the alcove. 

6. Lampyris Campestris 
Location: These are found on Lighthouse Island at night.  Head to the lower 
meadow by following the narrow path from the Lighthouse to find them near a 
tree.  You'll also find them in the Mine on Black Isle. 

7. Larus Albus 
Location: Head to the lower meadow during the day and take a picture of one of 
the circling seagulls.  

8. Priodontes Campestris 
Location: The armadillo-like creature that is grazing just outside the 
Lighthouse entrance.  

9. Vorax Nocturnus 
Location: You can find it at night on Lighthouse Island if the shield is 
deactivated.  Observe its flight pattern before taking a picture.  You can 
also find it in the Nutripils Factory Entrance, flying above the walkway near 
the hatch.  

10. Dipneustes Trilineatus 
Location: Stand at the edge of the dock behind the emergency generator that 
you push in order to activate the hovercraft.  Look down into the water and 
search carefully for a small green fish.  Zoom in and take its picture. 

11. Rhinoceros Sapiens 
Location: At Mammago Garage, take a picture of either Issam (at the outside 
counter), Babukar (at the dock), or Hal(standing inside). 

12. Teratosaurus Imperator 
Location: This is the large sea serpent that starts attacking right after you 
leave the Mammago Garage on your first visit.  Take its picture before 
fighting it.  

13. Rascax Caeruleus 
Location: After the battle with the monster listed above, Pey'j mentions that 
a school of blue scorpion fish are hopping through Hillys Bay.  You will 
inevitably encounter them at some point during your hovercraft travels, but it 
is best to get them now, just in case you forget about them later. 

14. Musca Saprophagia 
Location: Even though this insect can be found in the Black Isle Mine, you can 
get it much earlier.  Kick one of the barrels in the Lighthouse kitchen to 
make it appear.  

15. Lycoperdon Fugiferus 
Location: These are the mushroom-like creatures scattered throughout the Black 
Isle Mine.  

16. Anemonia Mutabilis 
Location: This giant anemone occasionally blocks your path through the Black 
Isle Mine. You have to attack it in order to make it retract its tentacles.  

17. Crochax Velox 
Location: An enemy you first meet in the Black Isle Mine.  They look like 
giant wasps.  You'll also find that they like to carry Pearls. 

18. Amoeba Polypodia 
Location: In the Black Isle Mine, there is a small alcove that's revealed 
after knocking down a gangway.  Enter it walk to the end.  There's a wooden 
barrier that prevents you from going any further.  Use the Camera to zoom in 
to the area behind the barrier and you will see a pair of Amoeba Polypodias.  
They are shy, and will take turns ducking behind some rocks.  Keep your finger 
on the X Button and take a picture of an Amoeba when it appears.  This might 
take several tries.  

19. Cyanea Urtica 
Location: Jelly fish creatures that attack you in the Black Isle Mine's 
Secondary Shaft (Medusa Cavern).  

20. Pelagia Pachydermis 
Location: They attack you after you defeat the group of jelly fish (Cyanea 

21. Alicia Splendens 
Location: You'll find this benevolent and beautiful creature undulating on the 
walls of the Black Isle Mine.  Your first chance to photograph it comes after 
you defeat the enemies in the Secondary Shaft (Medusa Cavern).  

22. Spongus Gluanteus 
Location: Once you reach the Excavation Map in Black Isle Mine, turn left to 
enter a room with a large, green sponge-like creature.  That's the Spongus 

23. Helix Rupestris 

Location: Walk across the Spongus Gluanteus to spot a big snail-like creature. 
 Wait for its head to pop out, and then take a picture.  

24. Planaria Rupestris 
Location: In Black Isle Mines, there's a room with a power box (marked with a 
lightning bolt.)  Kick the power box, and then use the Camera to look up at 
the ceiling to catch a glimpse of the Planaria Rupestris.  It disappears when 
the lights come back on. 

25. Astacus Erectus 
Location: Exit the Black Isle Mine and go into the waterfall room on the left 
(it's on the right when you're going down the path from the De Castellac 
limo).  In this room, climb into the pipe on the left.  This brings you to a 
cistern.  There are several Astacus Erectus scurrying about. 

26. Papilio Pilosus 
Location: From the cistern, have Pey'j cut open the grate, and then follow the 
duct to the next grate, which has already been torn open.  Use your Camera to 
zoom in on the creature crawling across the far ledge.  This is the Papilio 
Pilosus.  If you miss it, another one will appear, so don't worry. 

27. Nautilus Fluoreus 
Location: Once you return to the Main Shaft from the Secondary Shaft, you'll 
spot a white shell-like creature floating in the distance.  Zoom in and take a 
picture before it gets away. 

28. Palinurus Rupestris
Location: Once you return to the Main Shaft from the Secondary Shaft, you'll 
reach a dropoff where you have to leap down to a lower plateau.  After a brief 
cutscene, you'll be attacked by the Palinurus Rupestris.  Take its picture 
before fighting it.  Note: After this battle, you get another chance to 
photograph the Nautilus Fluoreus if you missed it before.  

29. Pterolimax Gigantea 
Location: This creatures serves as the boss of the Black Isle Mine.  Take its 
picture as soon as the battle begins.  

30. Aquilus Sapiens 
Location: These bird-men can be found in the Pedestrian District.  Your best 
bet is to photograph the guy behind the counter at the newsstand.

31. Walrus Sapiens
Location: They are wandering around the Pedestrian District.  One will usually 
walk by the newsstand, and there's usually one that hangs around near the 
Akuda Bar.  Ming Tzu (the shop owner) is also a member of this species.  

32. Taurus Sapiens
Location: Take a picture of the Mo the Bartender in the Akuda Bar. 

33. Carcharodon Sapiens 
Location: Francis (the Pallets guy) is a member of this species.  

34. Felis Sapiens
Location: Mei, one of your contacts for the IRIS Network, is a member of this 
species.  You can find her in the IRIS Den.  

35. Koi Kumonryu 
Location: In the fish tank at Ming-Tzu's Shop.  

36. Bufo Erectus 

Location: The frog-like creature near the entrance to Vorax's Lair.  If you 
don't know where that is, it's directly across from the first Looter's Cavern, 
on a beach near Mammago Garage.   

37. Manta Cyanea
Location: It flies above the Nutripils Factory.  Take its picture before 

38. Rattus Giganteus 
Location: You'll find many of them throughout the Factory. 

39. Aedes Raymanis 
Location: In the Nutripils Factory, you'll find a dead cow.  Zoom in on the 
nose of the corpse to see the Aedes Raymanis, an insect that apparently feeds 
on dead animals.  

40. Cyclopeus Palustris 
Location: This the Reaper, a Boss that you fight in the Factory. 

41. Sarcophagus Domzii 
Location: These are the Specters you fought at the beginning of the game.  You 
fight then in the Factory as well, and that is where you get their picture. 

42. Rattus Albus
Location: This rodent can be tough to photograph.  In the X-Ray Verification 
Room, you will find a catwalk.  Follow it to the other side of the room.  Move 
down the ramp and you'll see a white rat in the ventilation duct beneath the 
ramp.  Hop down to the lower ramp.  This makes the rat run away.  Go to the 
very bottom of this ramp and wait for the rat to come back.  Then, crouch and 
move toward it.  When you get close enough, you can take its picture.  If you 
stand up, it will run off again, so be careful. 

43. Blabera Gregaria 
Location: In the Factory, you'll enter an area known as the Closet.  There's a 
cabinet in the corner.  Open the cabinet and a small insect scampers away.  
Use your Camera to inspect the interior of the cabinet, and you will notice 
that there are fragments, which are analyzed as "Traces of Blabera, a very 
greedy insect."  Place one of your Starkos wafers in the cabinet.  A group of 
Blabera Gregaria will come out and grab the wafer.  That's when you take the 
picture.  If you miss them, then you can simply put down another wafer to lure 
them out again.  

44. Arachnis Viridis 
Location: From the Closet, you can reach the Nutripils Vat.  Press the switch 
on the right side of the vat and then sneak around the left side to avoid the 
Alpha Sections Guard.  Go through the doorway.  In the next corridor, you'll 
find some Arachnis Viridis, which are little green spiders. 

45. Macropodia Omnivora
Location: Alpha Sections Underground Quarters.  When you step onto the dock, 
you'll see several slug-like creatures.  Photograph one of them, and then use 
a kick to eliminate them.  Note: To reach the Underground Quarters, take a 
left from the Pedestrian District and exit the Main Canal.  Turn left again to 
go through another entry arch.  Blast the Alpha Filter Robot with the 
Neutralizing Cannon and then enter the castle-like structure. 

46. Megaptera Borealis 
Location: Once you jump over the laser barriers south of Mammago Garage, you 
will see a large whale moving in the water to the right of the Slaughterhouse 
Race entrance.  Given the thing's size, it's pretty hard to miss. 

47. Anguilia Bifida 
Location: This green snake can be found in the Slaughterhouse Reservoir.  

48. Trilobites Saltans 
Location: At the Slaughterhouse Entrance, use the Camera to look to the left 
and spot the glowing creature on top of the debris.  

49. Ignis Ignifera
Location: In the Slaughterhouse Surveillance Room, find the switch that raises 
the gate.  Climb up to where the gate is and stand on it.  Have Double H press 
the switch.  When the gate stops moving, head to its far-right side and climb 
up onto the ledge and enter the Ventilation area.  Kick the rats and then use 
a Gyrodisk to stop the fire.  See the flame-like creature on the right?  
That's the Ignis Ignifera, and it is the game's most elusive animal (or at 
least I think so).  

50. Timorea Saponifier 
Location: In the Trolley area of the Slaughterhouse, you will have to send 
Double H through a barred door.  He will crash into the next room, disabling a 
Guard in the process.  Another Guard will come down a ramp to investigate the 
noise.  Stay hidden until the Guard says that it's all clear, and then nail 
his oxygen tank with a Gyrodisk.  In the room at the top of the ramp, you will 
spot a small, bubbling creature. It will hide in a corner behind some crates. 
 Shoot at the crates with a Gyrodisk and the Timorea Saponifier will hop 
across the floor to another corner.  Take its picture before it reaches the 
corner. This may take several tries since the little guy moves quickly.   

51. Amoeba Saltans
Location: In the Slaughterhouse, ride the trolley to Central Hall.  There is a 
green console marked with the number "35".  Have Double H push the button on 
the button on the front of the console, and the Amoeba will leap out of the 
meat processor behind the console.  If you miss it, then you can simply have 
Double H press the button a second time. 

52. Lutra Erecta 
Location: This creature is waddling about on top of the Lighthouse.  You might 
have seen it up there at the beginning of the game, but there was no way to 
photograph it.  Once you find the Beluga, and buy the Flight Stabilizer at 
Mammago Garage, head back to Lighthouse Island to find that the Lighthouse has 
been destroyed.  Head upstairs to watch a cutscene.  Afterwards, head out to 
the landing (by going up a wooden ramp) and look for the Lutra Erecta on the 
other side of some rubble.  

53. Megaptera Purpurea 
Location: Once you have found both Flight Stabilizers and have restored power 
to the Beluga Spaceship, head to the crater on top of Black Isle.  To the 
left, past the line of beacons that mark the end of the "territorial waters" 
is a whale.  Take its picture.  

54. Manta Magnificens 
Location: Once you have the Beluga, position yourself over the crater on top 
of Black Isle, and then head right (or due east).  You will pass the Factory 
that you explored earlier in the game.  Keep heading due east until you see 
the Manta Magnificens.  

55. Aurelia Magnificens 
Location: In the Volcano's Treasure section.  Step onto the dock and you'll 
see a glowing blob on the left wall, past the Mdisk reader.  That blob is the 
Aurelia Magnificens.  

56. Megaptera Anaerobia 
Location: Once you reach outer space, you will see a shiny blue object heading 
off to the right.  It is large chunk of ice, and there's a whale trapped 
inside.  Shoot the ice to free the whale and then take a picture of the whale. 

Send the animal pictures to the Science Center to get Materia Crystal Units.  
Each time you finish a roll of a film, you get a Pearl (except the first 
time), and when you have taken pictures of every animal, you get an Mdisk that 
allows you to look at your pictures.  

I hope this FAQ has been helpful.

I would like to thank Rick Barba, whose strategy guide (from Bradygames) 
helped me find some of the tougher animals.
