cf. is an abbreviation from a Latin word (confer) and means 'refer to' or 'compare with', here it means it could possibly be Okenia japonica or perhaps something closely related, or at least similar in appearance.
Okenia japonica is characterized by a translucent whitish/gray body and white rounded papillae along the edge of the mantle, and by a single medial papilla in front of the gills. There is a white band along the edge of each gill.
Okenia cf. japonica differs from Okenia japonica by white specks on the lateral appendages.
