Otinodoris sp. 03 is characterized by a reddish-pink body colour, by numerous tan branched papillae and tubercles of varying colours, and by several irregular arranged excavations or 'pits'. The excavations mimic a sponge oscule. Many undescribed species of Aldisa have the excavations at the dorsal midline. The rhinophore clubs are tan, their bases are translucent, and the large gills are translucent tan.
NUDIPIXEL had a picture of a similar specimen from Komodo Island, Indonesia as Aldisa sp.  Bergh, 1878, identification verified by Dr.Richard C. Willan, which differs by large whitish patches, the website NUDIPIXEL is down, the picture is gone.
This species was misidentified and posted on 24 September 2014 at these websites as Aldisa sp. 06  Genus: Bergh, 1878, Dr.Richard C. Willan wrote (pers. copmment)
on 31 January 2017 that the tiny branched papillae make it to a species of Otinodoris (not Aldisa), I changed into Otinodoris sp. 03  Genus: White, 1948.
