Platydoris cinerobranchiata is characterized by large red patches on the tan mantle, by the brownish-green rhinophores, and by the uniformly dark bluish-grey gills.
Pretty similar are:
Platydoris formosa which differs by its bright red rhinophores and by distinct black lines outlining the gills and
Platydoris cruenta which differs by its hair-like brown lines on the mantle
Platydoris scabra which lacks red patches on the mantle
It was posted on 02 June 2004 at these websites as Platydoris cf. formosa (Alder & Hancock, 1866) [Doris]
