External AppearanceThe blunt, spatulate head shape is wider than the body width. Two large, wide stripes of reflective granules extend on the dorsal surface to the first pigment band continuing posteriorly as six to eight longitudinal stripes. This species has well-developed lateral sensory organs at the third pigment band and appears to have ocelli-like structures at the tip of the head. The ventral mouth interrupts the first pigment band.
