Godiva sp. 02 is characterized by its translucent pinkish-orange body. The cerata are basally translucent pinkish. medially is a diffuse orange region, subapically is a diffuse blueish region, the apices are yellowish-white. The rhinophores are basally translucent pinkish, with the outmost third diffuse orange, and white tips. The oral tentacles are basally pinkish-orange, medially is a diffuse orange band, the apices are yellowish-white.
I placed this Facelinid on 23 June 2004 in the genus Sakuraeolis and labelled it Sakuraeolis sp. B, with the comment: "It could be as well a Godiva or another Facelinid."
I moved it on 4 March 2012 into the genus Godiva  Macnae, 1954, and changed it on 4 March 2012
into Godiva sp. 02  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 '02' looks a little bit stupid, and now is only the genus italic written. Working on that change I decided to follow NUDIPIXEL and moved it to genus Godiva.
There were 2 pictures of this species from Malaysia at NUDIPIXEL, this website is down.
Pretty similar is Godiva sp. 01 which lacks the blueish subapical region on the cerata.
