It is very similar to Glossodoris electra but this latter has the mantle edge bright yellow.

This appears distinct from cincta, and only from Mozambique, Tanzania, and S Africa.

An undescribed species. This species is characterised by its small adult size (only 40 mm) and colour pattern that includes a brown or peach submarginal band next to the white band. Additional photos of this species appear on page 194 in Nudibranchs of the World by Helmut Debelius and Rudie Kuiter.

Probably an undescribed species.

This is indeed quite similar to Glossodoris symmetrica (note this is the correct spelling of the name, not “symmetricus’), but Glossodoris symmetrica has a narrower red submarginal band and opaque white markings on the mantle like Glossodoris pallida.

It is also similar to Glossodoris electra, but that has a bright yellow marginal band and brown rhinophores and gills.
