This is an undescribed species of the genus Janolus. I label it Janolus sp. 06, to distinguish it from other undescribed species of Janolus.
It is characterized by its translucent orange body, cerata and rhinophores. The cerata and rhinophores have bright blue apices and violet/purple subapical rings. The branched digestive glands in the cerata are dark green/brown. The caruncle is orange.
This species is most likely as Janolus sp. 8 in Gosliner et al. (2015) page 308, though the above specimen lacks opaque white specks, and differs by an orange caruncle.
