Note the characteristic white granules in the skin that are not present in similar colour forms of the related species Phyllidia ocellata.

A nice photo of a typical adult specimen.

A juvenile individual in which the lateral black swirls and white granules characteristic of this species are present, but none of the pustules have acquired the orange pigmentation on their caps yet.
