Doriprismatica sp. 02 Genus: d'Orbigny, 1839

Doriprismatica sp. 02 is characterized by its white background colour with chocolate brown pigment in its center. The broad marginal band is pal tan with thin dark brown rim. The rhinophores and the gills are dark brown/black with pale yellowish bases. The edge of the mantle is highly undulating.
This species is somehow similar to Doriprismatica sp. 4 in Gosliner et al. (2015) page 239, which differs by a yellow marginal band and white bases of the rhinophores and of the gills.
Let me quote R.F. Johnson & Gosliner (2012): "..we will premilinarily name these species ‘Doriprismatica’." I guess a typo, should be preliminarily.
