Gymnodoris sp. 07 is characterized by its translucent whitish colour with small orange spots, the rhinophores are translucent orange. The gills are translucent white with orange tips, and are arranged in an arc in the middle of the body. There is a row of orange tubercles at the anterior margin of the head. The anterior end of the foot ends in two lobed sensory folds, the posterior end of the foot is paddle shaped flattened with an orange tip.
Very similar are:
pale variants of Gymnodoris citrina, which differs by the gills, forming a complete circle around the anus, and
Gymnodoris sp. 06 which has the gills near the posterior end of the body.
Gymnodoris sp. 08 which differs by the 5 simple gills, and by the translucent white rhinophores with orange tips
Gymnodoris sp. 07 was misidentified and posted on 15 June 2003 at these websites as Gymnodoris citrina (Bergh, 1875) [Trevelyana], and
changed on 10 April 2012 into Gymnodoris sp. 07  Genus: Stimpson, 1855.
