The small white markings in the black depressions are probably epizoic acoel flatworms.

Reticulidia fungia apparently does not attain the size of Reticulidia halgerda. Reticulidia fungia is separable from Reticulidia halgerda by having: broad based ridges which are fewer in number, the bases being finely bordered in white; a broad blue-grey mantle margin (narrow and orange in Reticulidia halgerda); paler coloration ventrally, a black line around the side of the foot just above the gills; and rhinophores with 14-18 lamellae on the clavus (24-28 in Reticulidia halgerda).
