At present, there is little to distinguish between Ardeadoris egretta, Glossodoris electra, Glossodoris averni, and other unnamed species of the species complex that are very similar externally. So I use the simple rule – if an individual has completely white gills it has to be Ardeadoris egretta. This individual has brown gills, so it must be a species other than Ardeadoris egretta.
