Murphydoris cobbi has been recently described, published 14 March 2022. It is characterized by a white body with brown patches at the sides and behind the rhinophores. The rhinophores are brown with some white spots. The white extrabranchial processes are light yellowish-pink tipped. The anterior margin is light yellow.
Very similar is
Goniodoridella sp. 07 which differs only by the colour of the rhinophores: translucent white
This species was posted on 17 January 2004 at these websites as Goniodorididae sp. A  Family: Adams, H. & A., 1854,
I changed it into Goniodoridella sp. C on 6 July 2011 because it looks very similar to Goniodoridella sp. 6 in IPN at page 128.
At least am I pretty sure that it should be placed in the genus Goniodoridella, not in a "new genus". I changed it on 10 August 2011
into Goniodoridella sp. 03  Genus: Pruvot-Fol, 1933.
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.
I changed it again on 19 March 2022 into Murphydoris adusta  Paz-Sedano, Smirnoff, Candás, Gosliner & Pola, 2022
