Aldisa fragaria is characterized by two pits or depressions, one behind the rhinophores and the other immediately in front of the gills, each surrounded by a ring of brown to black pustules each of them in a lighter ring. The body, gills, and rhinophores are orange-red. It has two transverse lines of white speckles.
This species is as Aldisa sp. 2 in IPN at page 160 and also as Aldisa sp. 2 on the Sea-Slug Forum,
it was posted on 2 April 2011 at these websites as Aldisa sp. A  Genus: Bergh, 1878, and changed on 16 July 2011 into
Aldisa sp. 01  Genus: Bergh, 1878.
For some genera, such as Trinchesia was the alphabet almost through. I had to change the distinguishing alphabetic character into a number. I had chosen 2-digit numbers, even though '01' looks a little bit stupid, and now is only the genus italic written.
R.F. Johnson (2011) moved the genus Aldisa  Bergh, 1878 from the family Dorididae  Rafinesque, 1815 to the resurrected family Cadlinidae  Bergh, 1891.
Tibirišß, Pola & Cervera (2017) described it from Zavora Bay, Inhambane Province, Mozambique.
