No, really! I am reading it for scientific research! And the colors too!

Nudi Pixel is a web-based identification tool for nudibranchs [a group of soft-bodied, marine gastropod molluscs] worldwide using photographs as the first point of identification. It is underpinned by up to date scientific classification.

Gah! Why are these sites all so terribly designed. Dividing them by genus? Try color maybe or location + color if you're appealing to non-scientists. I mean, I know nudibranchs reasonably well and I couldn't find a thing on that site.

The evolution of What Bird/ iBird should be required study for anyone making an ID site.

Needs bigger pictures to show the beauty of the 'branchs!

That could be true (but it doesn't sound particularly humble).

And it's down.

It's up again!

I think this appeals to me as a non-scientist in that I can poke around without needing to know genus or species or blahblah ginger anything, and I'll soon find something weird and colorful and what looks like psychedelic glass sculpture instead of an actual living being.

But that said, a good starting point is their Picture of the Week section. (Last updated three years ago.)
