Aldisa sp. 03 is characterized by a reticulate pattern of ridges with lighter tips on the orange mantle, and by the large excavation or 'pit' in the dorsal midline just behind the rhinophores, and small excavation in front of the rhinophores. The excavations mimic a sponge oscule. The specimen of it in IPN has one more small excavation in front of the gills.
It is Aldisa sp. 7 in IPN at page 161, Dr. Alicia Hermosillo McKowen labelled it 'Doris rojo6'.
