Pretty similar is ‘Doriprismatica’ atromarginata which differs by the black gills, lacks the bluish submarginal band, and lacks the white speckling.
This species is in most publications as Glossodoris paladentatus Rudman, 1986,
Johnson & Gosliner (2012) moved it to the provisional genus ‘Doriprismatica’ d'Orbigny, 1839.
