Aldisa sp. 05 is characterized by a reddish-pink body colour, and by several irregular arranged excavations or 'pits', which have a dark spot in the middle. The excavations mimic a sponge oscule. All other undescribed species of Aldisa have the excavations at the dorsal midline. The rhinophores and the gills are translucent reddish-pink.
Dr. Alicia Hermosillo McKowen labelled it 'Dorido rojo 1.JPG'.
NUDIPIXEL has a picture of a similar specimen also from Anilao which differs by the brownish-grey colour.
