Goniodoridella sp.05 is characterized by its whitish body, scattered with brownish-black spots, looking like a crescent just behind the rhinophores. The rhinophores, the gills, and the extrabranchial processes are translucent white. The picture of this approximately 1-2 mm specimen is a cutout of the original picture.
It is most probably Goniodoridella sp. 7 in IPN at page 128:

though it seems to lack the median black patch in front of the rhinophores.
Pretty similiar is:
Goniodoridella sp. 01 which differs by the black line running down from the 'crescent' at the sides in a posterior slant.
