Janolus savinkini has recently been described, let me quote Martynov & Korshunova (2012):
"The ground color is creamy, yellow with a light orange hue. The papillae have the same color throughout most of their length, but apically they are cover with a broad purplish ring and bright, opaque blue apical spot. The rhinophores have similar color pattern to the papillae." The caruncle is also pale yellowish/cream.
This species is as Janolus sp. 2 in IPN at page 318,
it was posted on 28 October 2010 on these websites as Janolus sp. B, and on 12 September 2011 changed into Janolus sp. 02.
Pretty similar are:
Janolus sp. 01 which differs by the rhinophores: brown with white tips, and by the cerata: below the purple subapical ring is a broad yellow ring,
Janolus tricellariodes which has opaque white specks on cerata, caruncle, and rhinophores,
Janolus flavoanulatus which differs by the rhinophores: blueish tinge with darker apices, and by the cerata: translucent with a diffuse yellowish ring below the purple ring
