The Western Coral Triangle province is the biodiversity hotspot of the Central Indo-Pacific realm. Where the malacofauna of the Philippines (ecoregion 127 and part of ecoregion 126) is well documented, other ecoregions are seriously under-documented. Of Indonesian waters, only the island of Bali is well documented in collections, mainly due to its extensive tourism industry.
All ecoregions have their own pages here.
