Goniodoris felis is characterized by an opaque white head and dorsum, with a dark brown/black patch between/behind the rhinophores. The gills are white, in some specimens with brown lines on the rachis or in some specimens with brown spots. The sides of the body are translucent brownish with some brown and white mottling.
The identification of this specimen was confirmed by Bill Rudman with the words: "This is quite possibly Goniodoris felis".
The are many pictures of this species from Japan, (the type localty) online which fit Baba's drawing and look pretty different!
More information on Goniodoris felis are on Bill Rudman's Sea-Slug Forum!
