Phyllidiopsis shireenae is characterized by its mid-dorsal crest, very pale pink coloration with two black longitudinal lines which sometimes cross over the crest and salmon pink rhinophores.
Pretty similar is:
Phyllidiopsis pipeki which has bright pink colouration and consistently two straight black longitudinal lines only, rounded white tubercles (not multicompound). The rhinophores are pink with a black tip and a black line down posterior edge.
