This is an undescribed species of the genus Janolus. I label it Janolus sp. 07, to distinguish it from other undescribed species of Janolus.
This species is characterized by a translucent/clear body, rhinophores and cerata, with some small white spots. There is pale tan pigment on the outer third of the cerata and brownish pigment on the rhinophores. There are tubercles/papillae on the cerata which have pointed clear tips and a pink subapical band. The papillate rhinophores have also pink pigment near the tips. The caruncle is tan.
The above specimen was identified by Dr. Richard Willan, thanks!
This species is somehow similar to Janolus sp. 10 from the Marshall Islands in Gosliner et al. (2015) page 308, that is Janolus sp. e100
at http://www.underwaterkwaj.com/, but clearly different.
