Said black band is usually wider towards the middle. Within the boundaries of the black band there are a few black spots. The edge of the triangular bluish foot is orange and extended posteriorly beyond the notum. The sensory tentacles (the antennae-like rhinophores) and the main respiratory organs (gills) are orange.[2]
