Tritoniopsis alba (Baba, 1949) is characterized by pustules on the whitish notum. Above is a modified scan of Baba' s drawing of Tritoniopsilla alba.
Some scientists used to call the white colour form of Tritoniopsis elegans (Audouin, 1826) Tritoniopsilla alba, later known as Tritoniopsis alba, which is
according to WoRMS now accepted as Tritoniopsis elegans (Audouin, 1826). I don't know who formally synonymised it, WoRMS gives no reference.
I found on 12 May 2020 that Yonow (2017) formally synonymised it.
