Pretty similar is Goniodoridella savignyi  Pruvot-Fol, 1933, which differs by a median londitudinal orange ridge.
This species is as Okenia sp. 1 in IPN, page 132,
it was posted on 7 June 2011 at these websites as Okenia sp. A  Genus: Menke, 1830, and changed on 31 July 2011
into Okenia sp. 01  Genus: Menke, 1830.
For some genera, such as Trinchesia 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.
