'Montereina' rubra has very distinctive colour-pattern: many small dark red spots in whitish rings on a mottled pinkish/rose-reddish mantle ground. The rhinophores are redbrown, the gills are pale redbrown with whitish lines.
The above specimen of the pictures #1, #2, and #3 was identified by Dr. Juan Lucas Cervera Currado, thanks! The identification of picture #4 was confirmed by Dr. Richard C. Willan.
This species was posted on 22 October 2004 at these websites as Peltodoris rubra (Bergh, 1905) [Discodoris], Dayrat (2010) moved it
to the provisional genus ‘Montereina’  MacFarland, 1905, I changed it on 11 June 2011
into ‘Montereina’ rubra (Bergh, 1905) [Discodoris].
I noticed on 7 June 2018 that WoRMS lists 'Montereina' rubra with the status alternate representation and changed it back
into Peltodoris rubra (Bergh, 1905) [Discodoris].
