Comprehensive Description

Read full entry


This animal is usually 10-20mm in length. It is very inconspicuous, brown (rarely white) in colour, but can be easily identified by the many knob-shaped tubercles and the tiny iridescent blue spots scattered over the back of the animal. The oral tentacles are short and rounded and the rhinophores are smooth. The rhinophores emerge from sheaths with large papillae at their edges.
