Pretty similar are:
Cratena sp. 01 which lacks the orange/red patches on the head and lacks white lines on the notum, and differs by white and a few orange spots on the body.
Cratena cf. lineata A which lacks of opaque white longitudinal lines on the notum,
Cratena cf. lineata B which differs by a translucent orange backgound colour and lacks the orange/red patches in front of the rhinophores.
Let me quote IPN: "Additional study is needed to determine whether individuals without lines on the notum represent a distinct species."
I like to add to this statement those specimens which lack the orange/red patches in front of the rhinophores.
