The mantle in this species is an almost translucent white in color. The mantle border ranges in color from opaque white to orange-yellow. The midline of the body has a more opaque line that runs from the rhinophores to the posterior branchia (gills). The rhinophores and branchia have an orange-brown tint.
The food source for this sea slug is not yet known. As is the case with many nudibranchs, it probably feeds on one specific sponge species.
