This is an undescribed species of the genus Janolus. I label it Janolus sp. 06, to distinguish it from other undescribed species of Janolus.
It is characterized by its translucent orange body, cerata and rhinophores. The cerata and rhinophores have bright blue apices and violet/purple subapical rings. The branched digestive glands in the cerata are dark green/brown. The caruncle is orange.
This species is somehow similar to Janolus sp. 8 in Gosliner et al. (2015) page 308, which is now
Janolus tricellariodes, though the above specimens lack opaque white specks, and differ by an orange caruncle.
