Pretty similar is Miamira cf. sinuata which lacks the white markings at the rhinophores and gills.
Miamira sinuata is in many older uw-guides labelled Orodoris sinuata, newer guides use the names Ceratosoma sinuata or Ceratosoma sinuatum, because Valdés & Gosliner (1999) synonymized Miamira and Orodoris with Ceratosoma.
this species was posted on 21 April 2003 at these websites as Ceratosoma sinuata (van Hasselt, 1824) [Doris],
on 8 July 2007 changed into Ceratosoma sinuatum (van Hasselt, 1824) [Doris], read on this the Sea-Slug Forum
Johnson & Gosliner ( 2012) have moved Ceratosoma sinuatum to the reerected ("rescued from synonymy") genus
Miamira Bergh, 1875.
