Doriprismatica paladentata (Rudman, 1986)
Doriprismatica paladentata is only known from Papua New Guinea and Vanuatu in the Western Pacific Ocean.
Similar is Doriprismatica atromarginata, but it differs in having scattered brown spots over the mantle. The whitish gills are lined with black or dark brown. There is a black marginal line and a bluish band around the mantle. This species feeds on sponges.
