Discodorididae sp. 06 is characterized by its translucent whitish-tan mantle with darker round patches, which are lighter encircled. The rhinophores are translucent with white tips. The gills are translucent whitish-tan.
I am not sure on the generic placement, that is why I use the family and call it Discodorididae sp. 06.
This specimen looks like a variant of IPN Rostanga sp. 1 at page 191:

This species was posted on 13 July 2011 at these websites as Discodorididae sp. F Family: Bergh, 1891, and changed on 16 July 2011 into
Discodorididae sp. 06  Family: Bergh, 1891.
For some genera was the alphabet almost through. I had to change the distinguishing alphabetic character into a number. I had chosen 2-digit numbers, even though '01' looks a little bit stupid, and now is only the genus italic written.
