A tiny, inconspicuous Doto of the coronata group, with 4 to 5 pairs of cerata. The ceratal tubercles are rather elongate and have terminal maroon-red spots, except for the apical tubercle, which often lacks the spot. The body is white with sparse mottling of red pigment. Can be distinguished from Doto coronata by the lack of red pigment on the inner faces of the cerata.
