    I have the book "Nudibranches of the world| by Helmut Debelius and Rudie Kuiper.

    Also after checking on the internet and then my books again I think the butterlflyfish is the Kleins Butterflyfish, also know as Blacklip Butterflyfish

    believe me it's a redbreast, it is one of my favourites, the "face-expression" is one of the silliest I have ever seen. The wrasse has 2 tiny teeth sticking out of the mouth and looks and behaves very "confused" (could be DI-member)...You find ton's of them at the northpart of the Masaplod-North" sanctuary, just before the little reef starts between 8 and 15 meters.

    blacklip and sunburst butterflyfish is the same, common names are often different even in one country. When I moved from Puerto Galera to Dumaguete I needed to "learn" the regional common's here as some are quite different.
    To be really honnest, for me it makes many times no difference if a fish has one tiny spot more on a fin and has a different name because of this.

    cheers
