The tip of the rhinophores and cerata are usually orange, yellow or white. The swollen cerata is a characteristic feature. The entire body, including the cerata, rhinophores and oral tentacles, occasionally take a golden hue. Some individuals display brown or white patches on the body. These may be confused with the similar Eubranchus pallidus, but lacks the brown band on the rhinophores, typical for E. pallidus.
