This is an undescribed species of the genus Dermatobranchus. I call it Dermatobranchus sp. 09, to distinguish it from other species of Dermatobranchus. It can be distinguished from other arminaceans by the pale pinkish mantle with reddish spots and a transverse u-shaped brownish patch in the anterior third. The rhinophores are brown/tan. The margin of the oral veil is orange with minute brown spots.
This species was posted on 28 January 2011 at these websites as Dermatobranchus sp. I  Genus: van Hasselt, 1824, on 29 July 2011 changed into
Dermatobranchus sp. 09  Genus: van Hasselt, 1824.
For some genera was the alphabet almost through. I had to change the distinguishing alphabetic character into a number. I had chosen 2-digit numbers, even though '01' looks a little bit stupid, and now is only the genus italic written.
