Nudibranch ID, developed by Gary Cobb for the iPhone, is an identification app for sea slugs and other Opisthobranchs from the Central Indo-Pacific region from Japan to Australia. The app features over 700 species of nudibranchs with full-color photos for each species, its name (including order and family), its size, colors it exhibits, along with the researcher and date that the species was first described. The app also contains interesting information about nudibranchs and full text search. Currently the app contains information on nudibranchs from the Indo Pacific and Eastern Racific, with species from Australia/New Zealand, Wesern Atlantic and Eastern Atlantic including Mediterranean and Red Seas coming soon.
The below 4 minute video shows a demo of the app:
The app is an an extension of the larger Nudibranchs: Sunshine Coast, Australia, Indi-Pacific Region Nudibranchs website run by Gary Cobb, David Mullins, Dr. Richard Willan, Terry Farr, and Julie Schubert.
It is available from iTunes for $13.99. It’s a bit pricey but if you love nudibranchs this app might be for you.
