This is an unidentified or undescribed species of the genus Otinodoris. I call it Otinodoris sp. 01, to distinguish it from other species of Otinodoris.
It is as Otinodoris sp. 1 in IPN at at page 174, let met quote the desciption: " The large body with distinct concavities and small, compound papillae is distinctive. There is opaque white pigment covering the body. The large tubercles and concavities are lined with a black ring."
It was presented as the "Opisthobranch of the Week" on 08 March 2009 at Michael D. Miller's The Slug Site.
More pictures of Otinodoris sp. 01 and other species of Otinodoris were at NUDIPIXEL, this website is down, the pictures are gone.
Valdés (2002) synonymized the genus Otinodoris  White, 1948 with the genus Asteronotus  Ehrenberg, 1831, that is the reason why it is at WoRMS status unaccepted. But obviously did Valdés himself not agree with his publication, because in 2008 are species of that genus in IPN on pages 174 and 175, Valdés is a co-author, and in Gosliner et al. (2015) are still species of that genus on pages 182 and 182, Valdés is again a co-author.
