Similar to D. diversicolor in having an opaque white line on the 'tail' but it usually has more than four pairs of cerata (usually 5-7), and usually has the cerata tipped with orange-yellow, although in rare cases this colour is absent. D. diversicolor also has a white colour form but it usually has no more than 4 pairs of cerata.
