Gymnodoris sp. 18 is characterized by its translucent whitish colour with small orange tubercles. The rhinophores are translucent white with orange tips. The simple gills are translucent whitish, and seem to form a complete circle in the posterior third of the body. There was no size recorded for this specimen, but it is obviously very small, most probably a juvenile.
Very similar are:
pale variants of Gymnodoris citrina, which differs by a line of orange spots at the anterior end of the mantle, and
Gymnodoris sp. 06 which differs by the translucent orange rhinophores, by the gills, which form an almost complete circle, and by the orange tipped paddle shaped posterior end of the foot,
Gymnodoris sp. 02 which differs only by the gills, which have orange tips,
Gymnodoris sp. 08 which differs only by the gills, which form an arch,
Gymnodoris sp. 13 which has an orange band on the head.
