There are many similar coloured chromodorids which Bill Rudman calls the "Chromodoris quadricolor colour group" of species characterised by black longitudinal lines, bluish backgrounds and orange bands at the mantle margins.
Chromodoris annae can be distinguished by the dark blueish specks in the bright blue areas. The orange band is submarginal and in some specimens it is particularly faint, as shown it can be almost white or dark-orange, almost red.
