Nudibranchs or sea slugs occur throughout the world’s oceans and are present in many marine habitats. The greatest diversity of species is found in the Indo-Pacific tropics with a concentration of species within the Coral Triangle (CT), encompassing the waters of six Southeast Asian countries: Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Malaysia, Timor-Leste and Solomon Islands. This global epicenter of marine biodiversity covers only 1.6 percent of the planet’s oceanic area, but attracts an increasing number of divers and underwater photographers, including nudibranch lovers.

A major update to Nudibranchs of the Coral Triangle book. (2022) It serves to fill a gap in the general public's understanding of nudibranchs in the years since the previous guides were published and a lot of species were described by scientists.

Corrections have affected several dozen species, some of them are quite common. A lot of "sp." were described, some well-known species has their names changed.
