ID sources for Kakaban Lake

09 August 2006 - 02:59 AM

Does anyone know any sources or websites for ID of flatworms, gobies and fish from Kakaban lake in Borneo? Or any sites with IDs?

Its a brackish water lake that used to be part of the sea just off the Kalimantan coast (derawan, maratua) and hence the species have evolved in isolation some since it was created.

I have a few pics from my trip there but they are "stuck" in my workflow at the moment (trying to ID b4 processing further). Anyone know any sources?
