Background 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 band.
