There are a number of species which are similar in shape and colour to G. atromarginata including the recently described G. tibboeli. Unfortunately some can only be identified at present from their internal anatomy, in particular the size and shape of their radular teeth. This come closest to G. sibogae, a species which until now has not been recorded from the Indian Ocean. So I will tentatively indetfy it as that species, but I can;t be 100% sure without some information on its anatomy.
