There are many similar coloured chromodorids which Bill Rudman calls the "Chromodoris quadricolor colour group" of species characterised by black longitudinal lines, bluish backgrounds and orange borders.
Chromodoris elisabethina is characterized by its uniform blue area of the mantle, by a broad orange band at the mantle margin, and by the black median line. There is a diffuse whitish band at the inner margin of the orange band, followed by a black band which encircles the uniform blue area. The gills and rhinophores are orange. The specimens of the pictures #3 and #4 are strange colour variants with additional black longitudinal lines.
