Geitodoris sp. 01 is characterized by its yellowish-orange to cream-brownish colour and small whitish tubercles in a whitish star-like pattern. The rhinophores are of the same colour as the body, with whitish tips. The gill-pocket is posteriorly directed with long, branched whitish-tan papillae at the anterior margin, the gills are also same colour as the body with whitish tips.
The specimens #1, #4, and #5 were identified by Dr. Richard Willan, thanks!
This species was posted on 23 June 2011 at these websites as Geitodoris sp. A  Genus: Bergh, 1891, and changed on 18 July 2011 into
Geitodoris sp. 01  Genus: 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.
