This species of the family Chromodorididae Bergh, 1891 is characterized by its milky whitish colour, by orange-red rhinophores, by an orange-red line on the rachis of the whitish gills, and by a distinctive orange-red marginal band on the anterior and posterior end of the mantle. Distinctive are also the mid-dorsal glands (white patches), which are in many chromodorids located near the mantle margin.
This species was posted on 20 February 2005 at these websites as Chromodorididae sp. A  Family: Bergh, 1891, and changed
on 28 July 2011 into Chromodorididae sp. 01  Family: Bergh, 1891
For some genera 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.
