Dendrodoris albobrunnea is characterized by it's elongate general shape. The body is translucent whitish-tan with irregular brown and whitish spots
Very similar are:
Dendrodoris albopurpura which differs by the whitish encircled pustules each tipped with a brown or purple spot,
Dendrodoris elongata which differs bys rows of whitish star-like markings, and
Dendrodoris sp. in IPN at page 279, which differs by a fine network of grey pigment, and by the rhinophores wich have subapical black pigment
This specimen was misidentified and posted at these websites on 3 December 2003 as Dendrodoris elongata, though it clearly lacks the stellate whitish markings.
