This is an undescribed species of the genus Atagema. I call it Atagema sp. 02, to distinguish it from other species of Atagema.
It has a light greyish-pink background colour and is covered with minute opaque white spots. Distinctive are the lighter mid-dorsal hump, the highly elevated rhinophore sheaths, and the gill pocket, which is elongate, extending posteriorly. The rhinophores and the gills are also greyish-pink.
This species is as Atagema sp. 3 in IPN at page 185 .
