A Marine Rapid Assessment Program (RAP) visiting the cost of Bali has reported nine potential new species, and there's a great photo collection here. A beautifully mottled "garden eel" from the genus Heteroconger peers out from the sediment. A striking "bubble coral" shines yellow, white, and green in the photographer's lights. A red-barred fish with a disdainful expression meanders across the bottom. And so on. Treat yourself to this display of the fellow life forms we're still uncovering.
