Haminoea sp. 04 is characterized by its translucent greenish body with large white patches giving a whitish appearance, and by large orange spots. The shell is translucent.
All of these species of Haminoea have rounded orange spots of various sizes and are very similar:
Haminoea sp. 02 which has smaller orange spots.
Haminoea ovalis which differs by its rounded black and purple spots,
Haminoea cymbalum which differs by broad orange bands and spots surrounded by opaque white
This species is most likely as Haminoea sp. 2 in Gosliner et al. (2015) page 30, and as Haminoea sp. 1 at the Sea Slug Forum.
There are pictures of this species online from Japan, from the Marshall Islands, from Hawaii from Milne Bay, Papua New Guinea,
from Manado, Indonesia, and from Green Island, Taiwan.
