Trapania euryeia is characterized by a brown background
colour with minute cream spots and reticulate white patches.
The extra-branchial and extra-rhinophoral processes are white with some patches of the same colour as the body.
The rhinophores and the base of the gills are also of the same colour as the body.
It is often confused with the temperate Australian species Trapania brunnea Rudman, 1987.
Pretty similar are:
Trapania cf. euryeia which lacks the minute cream spots on the brown background.
Trapania toddi which has a white background colour with reticulate brown patches in which are small white spots.
