Click the thumbnail photos to enhance!

Okenia sp. 05 is is characterized by a pale mauve body and darkere pigment on the notum. The lateral appendages are basally pale mauve, merging in the outer half into dark mauve, the outer 5th is crean to opaque white. The rhinophores and the gills are basally pale mauve, merging in the outer half into dark mauve to brownish.
The pictures #3, #4, and #5 were posted before at these websites as Okenia kendi  Gosliner, 2004, because it is in Gosliner et al. (2015) at page 136 as colour form. I disagree because there are serveral differences: in O. kendi is the body white whith brown markings, the appendages lack cream/white opices.
