Noumeaella isa is characterized by reticulate thin white lines on the translucent white body and papillate rhinophores.
Let me quote the description in Gosliner et al. (2008) at page 381:
"Body translucent white with a fine network of opaque white lines on the head, notum and cerata. Cerata curved inwardly. Rhinophores papillate"
Pretty similar is Noumeaella sp. 01, in which the opaque white forms spots and patches rather than lines, and the outer half of the oral tentacles and the tips of the rhinophores have orange pigment.
