    After a recent trip to Raja Ampat I have about 10-15 pictures of nudibranches and other strange looking small creatures and I am looking for their ID. Most (if not all) look pretty common i.e. nothing too rare I think.
    I have another trip to Ambon soon so I'm pretty sure I will have more such pictures.

    I've seen several places (including SB) were I could upload them asking for ID but due to their number and for the shake of learning things, I'd prefer to try first myself - they seem pretty easy/common anyway.

    As a totally newbie are there any guides/resources where I can start with?
    Preferably online/electronic and free if possible.

    Thanks a lot

    PS: I am not sure this is the right place to for this thread - if not please advice me where to move it - thanks

    Go to Nudibranch.com.au and check out the app that best suits the region. Then purchase from the app store.

    Thanks a lot. I've got them all but one flat worm. I'll ask about it at a dedicated Facebook group
