The body is greyish-white and speckled with brown or green pigment. The cerata are few in number and shaped like an urn; this feature distinguishes it from other closely related species. The rhinophoral and oral tentacles have a sub-terminal ring of white pigment and lower down, towards their base, 1 or sometimes 2 bands of brown pigment. Adults may grow to 10mm in length.
