Ever wondered what nudibranchs you see underwater? This app gives you the answer!
The Ocean Life ID - Nudibranchs application is based on identification keys which uses images and scientific illustrations as the solution to allow anyone to identify the observed nudibranchs when the scientific name is unknown. Using a sequential selection of morphological characteristics, the number of possible nudibranchs is narrowed until a final taxonomic group is attributed where the description provided contains all the selected characteristics. It is a simple identification process which allows anyone to identify a nudibranch in a relatively short time.
