cf. is an abbreviation from a Latin word (confer) and means 'refer to' or 'compare with', here it means it could possibly be Unidentia angelvaldesi or perhaps something closely related, or at least similar in appearance.
Unidentia cf. angelvaldesi lacks the purple longitudinal lines, there is only a very short purple longitudinal line near the right oral tentacle.
It is part of the 'Flabellina rubrolineata look-alike' complex, though lacking the purple lines
Pretty similar are:
Unidentia sp. 02 which differs by purple longitudinal lines, lacks the broad opaque white band at the rhinophores, and has a bluish background colour,
Coryphellina rubrolineata which differs by the papillate rhinophores, and differs by purple longitudinal lines,
Flabellina sp. 05 which differs by the bluish rhinophores and oral tentacles both with a white outer half, and differs by purple longitudinal lines, and
Unidentia sandramillenae which differs by purple longitudinal lines.
