This is an undescribed species of the genus Dermatobranchus   van Hasselt, 1824. I call it Dermatobranchus sp. 01, to distinguish it from other species of Dermatobranchus. It can be distinguished from other arminaceans by the white mantle with opaque white longitudinal ridges and several areas of black pigment between the ridges. The rhinophores are black with orange apices The margin of the blueish oral veil is pale orange/cream.
This species was posted on 18 December 2003 at these websites as Dermatobranchus sp. A  Genus: van Hasselt, 1824,
I found it somewhere at the internet as juvenile Armina semperi (Bergh, 1866) and changed it on 19 March 2011 into
Armina semperi (Bergh, 1866) [Pleurophyllidia], that was a double mistake:
-1 all pictures of Armina semperi (Bergh, 1866) and even Armina cf. semperi (Bergh, 1866) are misidentified, most likely starting with the
  Sea Slug Forum (1999), (the pictures of my message are gone they are at these websites as Armina sp. 09  Genus: Rafinesque, 1814),
  they are undescribed species of Armina  Rafinesque, 1814,
  Armina cf. semperi has been described as Armina scotti  Mehrotra, Caballer Gutierrez & Chavanich, 2017,
-2 this species is as Dermatobranchus sp. 6 in Gosliner et al. (2015) page 299.
I changed it again on 25 April 2017 into Dermatobranchus sp. 01  Genus: van Hasselt, 1824
