Trapania naeva is characterized by a translucent white body, with large brown/black rounded spots. The oral tentacles, the dorso-lateral processes, the rhinophores, and the gills are dark brown or black except for a short white basal region.
Pretty similar species of Trapania are:
Trapania japonica, which differs by yellow/orange lateral processes,
Trapania sp. 05, which differs by yellow/orange lateral processes, and by brown/black tipped white rhinophores,
Trapania sp. 08, which lacks the rounded brown spots and differs by yellow/orange outer halfs of the extra-branchial and extra-rhinophoral processes.
