Icons of popular model organisms?

Is there any resource of standardized and uniformly stylized (and potentially, but not necessarily, even free) icons of popular model organisms (including E. coli and other popular unicellular organisms)?

I wish to use it for making a small tabular-like panel with ~10 organisms, next to the main figure panel, which would show the detailed data for one organism.

Some model organisms are not yet included in unicode.

I saw some people use ggtree and emojifont to draw organisms in emoji. I hope this will help.

Does not answer your question as you want icons and not real images but still might be useful. NCBI Taxonomy linkout for given organism is usually a good resource to find images. Second is http://www.eol.org/ .

Sorry for spamming but openclipart is also a very good source (https://openclipart.org/) . Can be installed and accessed within libreoffice and takes care of most of my image needs. The animal icons is quite good and no restrictions (https://openclipart.org/share).

We use the EMBL-EBI Framework font icons for representing the species in our gene trees. To see the ones we have used, go to our page showing a profile of the PTEN drug target and expand the 'Gene tree' tab (second from the bottom).

Thank you. This is exactly what I would need, and they provide a contact for inquiries (which I shall use for trying to get a license or usage agreement).

See the PhyloPic project.

Edit: and the rphylopic project to access PhyloPic from R.

UCSC has some on their website. I am not sure if they are available for use with/without license.
