Mike, an easier way of remembering Red as right, is as if you are viewing the aircraft coming toward you. If you are behind the aircraft you will see a white tail nav, and the colored wing navs should not be visible. Maybe that explanation can be even more confusing!!! .
Phil, for the EMB -145/40/35 aircraft, the nosewheel has 2 taxi lights and 1 landing light, there are also 1 wing-root landing light on each wing. Wingtips have the standard red/green lights, plus strobes that generally do not flash in synch with each other (another EMB spotting clue). There are fuselage mounted wing inspection lights (1 on each side) and the tail is a white tail nav with a strobe also, and last but not least is the logo light, which, depending on the airline, is illuminated. Oh, I almost forgot the red anti-collision beacons, 1 on top and 1 below between the mains.
Hope this helps you add to your list
