Bill Rudman placed this aeolid tentatively in the genus Sakuraeolis, I posted it on 28 July 2003 as Sakuraeolis sp. A, to distinguish it from other species of Sakuraeolis, with the comment: "It could be as well a Godiva or another Facelinid."
This species is Godiva sp. 2 in IPN at page 383, I changed it on 4 March 2012 into
Godiva sp. 01 Genus: Macnae, 1954,
For some genera, such as Trinchesia 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. Working on that change I decided to follow IPN and moved it to genus Godiva. There are many pictures of it at NUDIPIXEL.
Pretty similar is Godiva sp. 02 which differs by a diffuse blueish subapical band on the cerata.
