Chromodoris lineolata is characterized by a black mantle with fine opaque white longitudinal lines, and a broad orange or yellow mantle margin. At the inner edge of the orange band is a black line. The gills and rhinophores are black with opaque white spots.
Pretty similar are:
Chromodoris striatella which differs by a white body with thin browish-black longitudinal lines and large brownish patches, and by a white band at the inner edge of the orange mantle margin,
Chromodoris burni which lacks the opaque white spots on the gills and rhinophores.
