Halgerda dalanghita is characterized by its yellow to pale orange-brown mantle with low ridges, in some specimens are the tubercles big and the connecting ridges high. On the ridges are white specks and many small brown specks. Brown and white marks can be found scattered elsewhere on the mantle. The rhinophore clubs are black to dark grey with a dull black mark on the posterior side of the rhinophore stalks, the gills are translucent white with black lines.
Pretty similar are:
Sclerodoris sp. 06  Genus: Eliot, 1904 which has papillae on the ridges, and differs by the gills, and by the ridges,
Sclerodoris sp. 07  Genus: Eliot, 1904 which differs by excavations or 'pits' near the mantle margin.
