Small animal, found in shallow water
(sublittoral) amongst algae close to sandy
areas. Cephalic shield is elongated, pinkish
with a white line present at the posterior
end; parapodia are similarly coloured with a
white line along the edges. Mantle is open
at the posterior end with the internal shell
visible as a cream coloured object
Size: 7-15mm. Rare.
Specific characteristics:May be mistaken
with Philine sp. but the homogenous
colouration (without spots) and lack of
ornamentation should be enough to
distinguish this species in the field.
