Diaphorodoris sp. 01 is characterized by its white tuberculate dorsum whith diffuse orange-tan patches, and by the pale yellow band at the mantle margin with brown spots. The rhinophore clubs are translucent brownish, the gills are whitish.
To my knowledge is this the only picture of this species it is not in IPN nor at the internet!- Of course except of the website of Francesco De Marchi, there it is labelled: 'Diaphorodoris sp.'.
