Goniodoris sp. 01 is characterized by its opaque white body with a brown marginal band around the foot and a diffuse yellow submarginal band. The gills are opaque white, the rhinophores are large and mottled translucent brown. The oral tentacles have brown tips followed by yellow.
This species is as Goniodoris sp. 2 in IPN at page 125, it was posted on 22 August 2004 at these websites as
Goniodoris sp. A  Genus: Forbes & Goodsir, 1839, and changed on 16 July 2011 into Goniodoris sp. 01  Genus: Forbes & Goodsir, 1839.
For some genera was the alphabet almost through. I had to change the distinguishing alphabetic character into a number. I had chosen 2-digit numbers, even though '01' looks a little bit stupid, and now is only the genus italic written.
