This is a tiny sea slug, the body length rarely exceeds 2 cm. It can be confused with E. doriae, but E. vittatus has no tubercles or swellings on the cerata. There are often dark rings near the tip. The body is grey, but heavily pigmented brown or green. There are some uncertainties among the experts whether this is the same species as E. cingulatus.


As far as we know, it feeds solely on hydroid K. pinnata, well below the tidal zone.


It is known from the British Isles, Norway and northern Spain.
