Cratena sp. 06 is characterized by its translucent witish body, and by opaque white cerata. The smooth rhinophores and the oral tentacles are basally translucent whitish, the outer half is opaque white. The cerata of this specimen are confusing: Some of the tips are swollen like a ball and opaque white, some of the ceras seem to have a thin dark ring subapically, with translucent greyish apices.
This is most probablyCratena sp. 4 in IPN on page 397:
