Doris sp. 02 is characterized by its yellow body, covered with rounded greyish-black tubercles, and by yellow rhinophores. The margins of the rhinophoral sheaths are black. The gills of the above specimen are not viewable, so I can't write how the look like.
It looks at least like Doris sp. 4 in IPN at page 156
Let me quote the description:" This species can be easily recognized by its yellow body with rounded tubercles where some are tipped with black pigment. The gill also contain black pigment while the rhinophores are yellow."
This species or a pretty similar one was the 'Opisthobranch of the Week' at Michael D.Miller's Slug Site on 9 June 2008.
