Group Description

Nudibranchs (NO e!), ウミウシ, sea slugs

The pronunciation is /ˈnjuːdɨbræŋk/ from Latin nudus, naked, and the Greek βραγχια, brankhia, gills. Statisticians in the audience will recognize χ from the χ-squared distribution.


• Australian Museum's Sea Slug Forum

• Since I frequently confuse flatworms with nudibranchs, I did some research at Wikipedia: flatworms , nudibranchs. (Thanks, Michael, for the prod.)

• Michael Rys has started a group flatworms.

Jun Imamoto's sea slug site Japanese and English

• The Sunset Resort Dive Center, Futoh (West Izu) has an extensive (191 this morning) catalog of Japanese nudibranch varieties. Japanese only, but the pictures are nice.
