Murphydoris sp. 021  Genus: Sigurdsson, 1991 is characterized by a white body with brown longitudinal patches at the sides and behind the rhinophores. The rhinophores are translucent white. The white lateral processes have some yellow pigment.
Very similar is
Murphydoris adusta which differs by the colour of the rhinophores: brown with white speckling.
This species is most likely as Goniodoridella sp. 2 in IPN at page 127, which differs by the dark green colour of the patches.
It was posted on 28 August 2013 at these websites as Goniodoridella sp. 07  Genus: Pruvot-Fol, 1933.
According to Paz-Sedano et al. (2022) should this species be placed within the genus Murphydoris  Sigurdsson, 1991.
I changed it on 24 March 2022 into Murphydoris sp. 02  Genus: Sigurdsson, 1991.
