Pretty similar is Baeolidia moebii in which the cerata are curved and flattened, often with blue and yellow markings, and it usually lacks the white patches on the body.
Baeolidia salaamica was originally placed by William B. Rudman in the genus Spurilla,
I followed IPN and published it on 17 April 2011 as Berghia salaamica (Rudman, 1982) [Spurilla].
I decided on 1 July 2013 to follow Carmona et al. (2013) and moved it into the genus Baeolidia Bergh, 1888.
