This is an unidentified or undescribed species of the genus Doto. I call it Doto sp. 06, to distinguish it from other undescribed species of Doto.
Doto sp. 06 is characterized by its mottled translucent dark brown body, and by its translucent yellowish-white cerata, each ceras is densely coved with rounded tubercles, each with a greyish spot at the tip. The distinctive rhinophores are brownish-black, the rhinophoral sheaths are mottled translucent brown, the margins of the rhinophoral sheaths are whitish.
I think it might be Doto sp. 1 in IPN at page 344:
Gosliner, Terrence M., David W. Behrens & Ángel Valdés. 2008. Indo-Pacific Nudibranchs and Sea Slugs. Sea Challengers Natural History Books.
Gig Harbor, Washington. 426pp.,
but IPN does not write a word on the colour of the body and of the rhinophores...
