‘Doriprismatica’ sp. 01 is characterized by the brownish-orange background colour, and by the minute white spots scattered on the mantle and on the foot. The mantle has a dark brown/black margin. The rhinophores and the gills have opaque white pigment on their surface.
This species is most likely as Glossodoris sp. 2 in IPN at page 234, and as Doriprismatica sp. 2 in Gosliner et al. (2015) page 239,
it was posted on 9 August 2011 at these websites as Glossodoris sp. 03 Genus: Ehrenberg, 1831, and changed on 24 September 2017
into ‘Doriprismatica’ sp. 01 Genus: d'Orbigny, 1839.
Let me quote R.F. Johnson & Gosliner (2012): "..we will premilinarily name these species ‘Doriprismatica’."
To my knowledge is this genus still provisional.
