There is some variation in the species currently called, Cadlina laevis. This animal looks more like the eastern Pacific C. luteomarginata. These animals cannot be identified by a picture alone and these specimens need to be investigated. This should be listed as cf. laevis. Can this be done?
Cadlina luteomarginata is often confused for Acanthodoris hudsoni which also has yellow tipped tubercles and a yellow mantel margin. Acnathodoris hudsoni cannot retract its gills or rhinophores when disturbed, has much longer tubercles and much longer rhinophores.
