This is an unidentified or undescribed species of the genus Platydoris. I call it Platydoris sp. 04 to distinguish it from other species of Platydoris.
Platydoris sp. 04 is characterized by its light reddish pink colour with large darker patches. There is a lighter mid-dorsal hump. The rhinophore clubs are brown and the gills are tan.
This species is as Platydoris sp. 2 in IPN at page 196, and as Platydoris sp. 4 in Gosliner et al. (2015), page 203. Dr. Alicia Hermosillo labeled it Doris rojo1.
It was posted on 24 May 2011 at these websites as Platydoris sp. D  Genus: Genus: Bergh, 1877, and changed on 13 November 2011
into Platydoris sp. 04  Genus: Bergh, 1877.
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.
