This species has the gray patches similar to Chromodoris strigata, but differs in a white body, orange bands between the black, and white pinnae on the gills. The color scheme is also similar to Chromodoris cf colemani, but there are just too many differences to consider them the same. These were fairly common during the May 2016 trip, usually on the underside or top of platelike spontes (Phyllospongia?) that grow out from the sides of reefs at a number of different dive sites.
