Dermatobranchus ornatus can be distinguished from other arminaceans by its the often flat-topped orange tubercles on the mantle and by the
orange-red marginal band on the notum. The foot and the oral veil are white edged with black spots and an orange-red marginal band.
The colour is variable and the tubercles lack sometimes any colouration.
In other specimens the tubercles are large and form raised orange rings.
