Trinchesia sp. 44 is characterized by its translucent whitish body with some opaque white markings. The cerata are mottled bright greenish/dark green with minute white spots and white apices. The smooth rhinophores and the oral tentacles are basally translucent orange, followed by white, then translucent orange, the tips are white. There is an opaque white marking between the rhinophores running to the oral tentacles.
I place it tentively within the genus Trinchesia  von Ihering, 1879, I should have better used the family Trinchesiidae  F. Nordsieck, 1972.
Korshunova et al. (2017) reinstated the family Trinchesiidae  F. Nordsieck, 1972 with the genera
