Siphopteron ladrones is characterized by white spots on the dorsal hump each bordered with an orange ring. There is a distinctive yellowish-orange median line on the head shield.
Let me quote the description at the Sea Slug Forum:
"Characterised by its distinctive colour pattern. Head shield with a median yellow-orange line and a diffuse yellow band along the anterior edge. The dorsal hump is yellow or orange with large white spots each bordered with a darker brown orange ring. The outside of the parapodia are brown with a large yellowish spot at the highest point and two basal white spots."
