Stiliger sp. 06 is most likely as Stiliger sp. 10 in Gosliner et al. (2015) page 77, let me quote the description:"Orange-green with opaque white and black pigment; cerata green to orange with less prominent black, blue and yellow subapical and apical bands. Rhinophores dark without yellow stripes; head with blue spots." The same picture is in IPN as Stiliger ornatus on page 73.
The cerata of the above specimens are translucent orange/greenish, with a broad blue subapical band and black apices. There is a blue spot on the head. The rhinophores are clear with white speckling, that is the specimen in the backgound seems to have black piment on the rhinophores.
Very similar is Stiliger ornatus  Ehrenberg, 1831 which differs by almost black rhinophores, and has only one broad black band on the cerata.
