Comment from Gary McDonald on photo #4592
The white line on the margin of the foot is characteristic

Comment from Gary McDonald on photo #2892
the white line on the edge of the foot is one of the characters that help separate this species from other species of Dendronotus, another character is the vertical row of 3–6 small, slightly branched processes on the posterior face of the rhinophore shaft .
