Paradoris sp. 01 is a pale yellow species and has a series of black lines running out to the mantle edge across the mantle skirt. The inner end of each line widens into an irregular spot. The rhinophore club is black and there is black on the upper part of each gill. Like other species of Paradoris, the mantle tissue is packed full of opaque whitish spherules.
This species was posted on these websites on 25 June 2003 as Jorunna sp. A   Genus: Bergh, 1876,
It is was placed in the genus Paradorisaccording to Dayrat (2006).
For some genera, such as Trinchesia 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.
