Paradoris sp. 02 is characterized by a whitish body with a pattern of thin brownish-black lines running diagonally across the mantle skirt. The rhinophores and the gills are basally translucent, the outer half is brownish-black. Like other species of Paradoris, the mantle tissue is packed full of opaque whitish spherules. The body is in fact translucent with closely placed opaque white spots, which gives it a whitish appearance, see the close-up.
