Chromodoris burni is characterized by a white to pale bluish body with thin black longitudinal lines, and by an orange marginal band at the mantle and the foot. Inside the marginal band of the mantle is a broad band of white, in some specimens with a series of black patches. The gills are white with orange edges. The rhinophore stalks are white and the clubs orange.
Pretty similar are:
Chromodoris striatella which differs by large browish patches on the mantle, and by opaque white spots on the gills and rhinophores,
Chromodoris mandapamensis which is densely covered with rounded dark brown spots, and differs by opaque white spots on the gills and rhinophores,
Chromodoris lineolata which has a black line on the inner edge of the orange margin, and differs by opaque white spots on the black gills and rhinophores. It is black with white lines, which looks like white with black lines.
