body color black with wide white median stripe, white marginal band,
and narrow yellow rim. Prominent tentacles on anterior margin, black
with white base.
This worm closely resembles Euryleptid 3 from Papua New Guinea on the
Newman & Cannon CD, with minor differences. The PNG worm has a narrower
white median stripe, more white between its tentacles, and a slightly
wider orange rim.
It could easily be confused with Pseudoceros
paralaticlavus but has black tentacles and a wider white marginal
to longitudinal stripes
