Translucent white body with an opaque white margin to the mantle and the foot. The upper half of the rhinophore club is black and there is an opaque white line down the posterior midline. The simple gills are translucent white with black edges. The radular morphology is similar to that of Glossodoris pallida and Glossodoris angasi. The wide mantle skirt is relatively thin and thrown into a number of waves around the edge.
