Discodorididae
The family Discodorididae includes flattened dorids with tubercles, papillae or caryophyllidia on the notum. Most are cryptic and nocturnal. It was recently revised to include the families Archidorididae, Asteronotidae, Kentrodorididae, Platydorididae, and Rostangidae. It is the largest nudibranch family in Hawaii with about 58 known species in 14 genera (Asteronotus, Atagema, Carminodoris, Diaulula, Discodoris, Geitodoris, Halgerda, Jorunna, Paradoris, Peltodoris, Platydoris, Rostanga, Sclerodoris, and Thordisa).

It's possible that the species listed as "Platydoris sp." in Kay & Young (1969) might be Platydoris sanguinea Bergh, 1905 but it needs confirmation. The animal referred to as "Another rigid species with broad thin margins..." on page 182 of Edmondson, 1946 is probably in this family but is likely unassignable. Dai Mar Tamarack sent a photo of an animal that may turn out to be an additional species of Rostanga. However, it requires confirmation.
