This is an unidentified or undescribed species of the genus Doto. I call it Doto sp. 05, to distinguish it from other undescribed species of Doto. It is one of a group of similarly coloured species which are still a bit of a puzzle. There may be a number of species, or just some which are very variable in colour.
Doto sp. 05 is characterized by its translucent tan body, and by its tan cerata, each ceras has many elongate tubercles, with greyish spots at the tips. The rhinophores and the rhinophoral sheaths are translucent, with some minute white spots.
