The very characteristically coloured elysiid is known from both the east and west coasts of Australia. Bill Rudman found it in New Caledonia, and Gosliner has recorded it from other parts of the western Pacific. It is characterised by the clusters of deep green marks on a dull cream background. The rhinophores are cream except for green patterning at the base and a brownish orange tip.
