Thecacera sp. 06 is characterized by its translucent orange background colour with flat rounded dark violet tubercles, and by translucent orange rhinophores with a dark violet subapical patch and diffuse bluish apices. The extrabranchial and extrarhinophoral processes and the gills are basally of the same colour as the body, merging into pale bluish with dark violet spots, the apices of the appendages are opaque white.
This species might be a colour form of Thecacera sp. 3 in Goliner et al. (2015), page 119.
