There are many similar coloured chromodorids which Bill Rudman calls the "Chromodoris quadricolor colour group" of
species characterized by black longitudinal lines, bluish backgrounds and orange borders.
Chromodoris cf. strigata can be distinguished by a characteristic pattern of dark translucent patches on the dorsum. They are arranged in a regular pattern, a pair behind the rhinophores, one in the centre of the dorsum and a pair just anterior to the gills. Chromodoris cf. strigata differs from Chromodoris strigata by its orange longitudinal lines.
Pretty similar is Chromodoris cf. colemani which lacks the dark translucent patches.
