Flabellina rubrolineata also has papillae on its rhinophores, but it has 3 longitudinal stripes on its body.
Flabellina delicata also has papillae on its rhinophores, but it has a purplish body and oral tentacles, and the tips of the cerata are dark purple.
Flabellina macassarana has lamellate rhinophores (i.e., numerous plate-like folds). It has a translucent pinkish to purplish white body, and the tips of the cerata are burnt orange.
