Aldisa sp. 07 is characterized by an orange/reddish body colour, with a network of orange lines and some irregular white spots, and by a round excavation or pit at the dorsal midline in front of the gills. The excavation mimics a sponge oscule. The rhinophores are orange/reddish with white specklings, and the gills are translucent with whitish tips. The gill pocket is elevated.
The above specimen was identified by Dr. Richard C. Willan, thanks!
