Does there exist anywhere a list of Bestiary monsters that would list the source material for each?

Like, it would list that Manitou is from Native American mythology, Mi-Go is from Lovecraftian mythology, and so on?

Just curious because it would give some additional cool context to show where some of these out-there ideas come from.

Just PM Sincubus/Nightterror, I'm pretty sure he has an exhaustive list of every mythological monster ever, given his obsession with the topic :)

:D


I'm a little bit rusty on my mythology, but I can tell you the Snallygaster is from a book called "Fearsome Creatures of the Lumberwoods, with a few Desert and Mountain Beasts"
