Click the thumbnail photos to enhance!

Goniodoridella sp.05 is characterized by its whitish body, scattered with brownish-black spots, looking like a crescent just behind the rhinophores. The rhinophores, the gills, and the extrabranchial processes are translucent white. The picture of the approximately 1 - 2 mm specimen #1 is a cutout of the original picture.
This species is most likely as Goniodoridella sp. 7 in IPN at page 128, though specimen #1 seems to lack the median black patch in front of the rhinophores.
Pretty similiar is:
Goniodoridella sp. 01 which differs by the black line running down from the 'crescent' at the sides in a posterior slant.
