The mantle is translucent with a reticulate pattern of orange-yellow and slightly raised white spots. Around the raised gill pocket the back ground can be quite dark, in some specimens forming almost black patches in front of and behind the gills. In others the background appears a dull purplish brown. There is a diffuse pale purplish border to both the foot and the mantle. The gills and rhinophore clubs are a translucent straw colour, and the gills are edged in a darker yellow-brown, sometimes with white spots or streaks along the inner edge. The gill pocket is noticeably raised. Grows to approx 50mm long.
