Discodorididae sp. 03 is characterized by its white mantle with dark brown to black patches. The rhinophore clubs are dark brown with a white tip, the gills are also dark brown.
This species was posted on 6 June 2004 at these websites because of the Sea-Slug Forum as Platydoris sp. C, but it is as Diaulula sp. 1 in IPN page 190.
According to Dayrat (2010) is the genus Diaulula no more valid, Dayrat suggests to use temporary "Montereina",
I decided to use the family and changed the name into Discodorididae sp. 03  Family: Bergh, 1891.
