Nembrotha mullineri is characterized by the cream coloured body with brown spots, patches and longitudinal bands. The mantle colour reaches from almost complete brownish to brownish with large white/cream stripes. The rhinophores and the gills are brown.
The juveniles of this species look very different as published on Mike Miller's Slug Site and shown by the pictures #5, #6, #7, and #8.
I thought they were several distinct species and posted them
- on 4 July 2003 as Nembrotha sp. F  Genus: Bergh, 1877.
- on 17 September 2003 as Nembrotha cf. mullineri  Gosliner & Behrens, 1997, and
- on 29 June 2007 as Nembrotha sp. G  Genus: Bergh, 1877.
I changed them on 19 December 2020 into Nembrotha mullineri  Gosliner & Behrens, 1997.
More information on Nembrotha mullineri are on Bill Rudman's Sea-Slug Forum!
