Dendrodoris tuberculosa can be distinguished from Dendrodoris carbunculosa (which looks pretty similar) by the tubercules which are packed close together and are often compound. In Dendrodoris carbunculosa are the large individual tubercules separated by smooth sections of the mantle, each tubercle is surrounded by a ring of small semispherical bumps.
