Kaloplocamus acutus is characterized by a mantle which ranges in colour from pale yellow-orange to a deep orange red. The branched papillae have translucent white stalks with some scattered opaque white pigmentation and the pointed branches are bright orange or orange-red. There are scattered white specks on the body. The six branched papillae on the head shield or veil are pretty long when extended, longer than in Plocamopherus. There are four branched papillae down each side of the body and a slight ridge between them denotes the mantle edge.
