Kabeiro rubroreticulata has been recently described (published 16 June 2015), Shipman & Gosliner (2015) erected the genus Kabeiro  Shipman & Gosliner, 2015 for the long bodied species of Dotidae.
This species was posted at these websites on 18 June 2011 as Doto sp. C, on 7 August 2011 changed into Doto sp. 03.
It is Doto sp. 14 in IPN, page 347
Let me quote from the description: "Body light brownish with reticulations of darker brown present on the notum and on the cerata. Cerata irregularly shaped with a few opaque white tubercles. Extremely elongate rhinophores."
This specimen shows the reticulate pattern of thin dark brown lines on the body very nice, most of them are transverse, its rhinophores are retracted. Some of its ceratal tubercles are inflated, all of them are translucent white and opaque white tipped.
