Goniobranchus sp. 07 is as Goniobranchus sp. 27 in Gosliner et al. (2015) page 226, let me quote the description:
"Cream to brown with opaque white spots over most of the notum; undulating orange submarginal band with a few black spots at its widest areas; marginal blue band with large purple-black spots; rhinophores orange; gill brown with white spots."
R.F. Johnson & Gosliner (2012) have restricted the genus Chromodoris  Alder & Hancock, 1855 to those Indo-Pacific species with black longitudinal lines, laying a flat egg mass, and moved most of the other species to the genus Goniobranchus  Pease, 1866.
This species was posted on 24 February 2013 at these websites as Chromodorididae sp. 03  Family: Bergh, 1891
