They do some times come with spots, some times they do not, but just as you say, the shape of the body is so different between Bajaeolis bertschi and Flabellina cynara there is no doubt.
An interesting note. I have 6 species of Flabellina in the Puerto Vallarta area, 5 described, 1 undescribed. F. telja, F.vansyoci and Flabellina sp. nov. have white spots over somewhat pink-orange shade bodies.
Some specimens of F. marcusorum and F. cynara have white spots.
The only Flabellina without any spots whatsoever is F. bertschi.
