Bulbaeolidia alba is characterized by the swellings on the translucent white rhinophores and the red line around their base. This line can form a complete ring around the rhinophores or in some case just a line on the posterior side. The body and cerata are white.
Bulbaeolidia alba was posted at these websites on 20 February 2005 as Aeolidiella alba  Risbec, 1928.
I decided on 4 July 2013 to follow Carmona et al. (2013) and moved it into the new genus
Bulbaeolidia  Carmona, Pola, Gosliner & Cervera, 2013
