I 've added Baba's line drawing copied from iNaturalist.
This species was posted on 8 April 2004 at these websites as Pseudobornella orientalis Baba, 1932,
Pola & Gosliner (2010) synonymized the genus Pseudobornella Baba, 1932 with the genus Dendronotus Alder & Hancock, 1845.
I noticed this change because of the recent discovery of this species at California, USA!
I changed it on 8 August 2016 into Dendronotus orientalis (Baba, 1932) [Pseudobornella].
Korshunova et al. (2020) confirm the validity of Pseudobornella Baba, 1932, I changed it back on 26 November 2020
into Pseudobornella orientalis Baba, 1932
