Discodorididae sp. 17 is characterized by its red background colour, densely covered with minute pinkish/white spots The gills and the rhinophores are orange/red.
Very similar are:
Discodorididae sp. 07 which differs by white tips on the rhinophores and has a middorsal ridge
Discodorididae sp. 13 which differs by irregular white patches, and by a series of middorsal humbs.
Pretty similare is Platydoris sp. 1 in IPN, page 195, which differs by the shape of the body and by white rachises of the gills.
