Sclerodoris sp. 01 is characterized by minute red/brown spots in the white reticulate pattern at the mantle margin. The body colour is orange-red, mottled with some darker spots. It has orange rhinophores with white tips. It is only known from this picture: the gills are retracted, impossible to write their colour. The ID was suggested by David W. Behrens. I guess this picture shows a 2 mm juvenile specimen of the same species, it was was identified by Dr. Richard Willan, thanks! It seems to develop the white reticulate pattern at the mantle margin.
