This specimen had been misidentified and posted on 8 June 2007 at these websites as Ceratosoma flavicostatum (Baba, 1940) [Miamira],
I changed it on 29 January 2011 into Ceratosoma cf. sinuatum (van Hasselt, 1824) [Doris] because it clearly differs
from all pictures of (Miamira flavicostata) at the web, but it also differs from Miamira sinuata by the almost complete lack of white markings at the rhinophores and gills.
- cf. is an abbreviation from a Latin word (confer) and means 'refer to' or 'compare with',  here it means it could possibly be Miamira sinuata or perhaps something closely related, or at least similar in appearance.
R.F. Johnson & Gosliner (2012) moved it to the reerected ("rescued from synonymy") genus Miamira  Bergh, 1875,
I changed it again on 12 May 2012 into Miamira cf. sinuata (van Hasselt, 1824) [Doris].
