This unnamed Janolus is remarkably similar in shape and colour to Dirona pellucida. One obvious difference is that Janolus has a single digestive gland duct running through each ceras to the tip. In Dirona there is no such duct.

It is shown as Janolus sp. 2 in Behrens and Hermosillo (2005) Eastern Pacific Nudibranchs, #227 on page 103.
