Aegires hapsis is characterized by a pale tan/white background colour. There is a fine network of white webbing covering the dorsum. This webbing is especially noticeable on the posterior third behind the gill pocket. There are small brown dots on either side of the dorsum midline. The tubercles protecting the rhinophore pocket have a dark brown top. The rhinophores are dark brown and the gill branches are white.
There are only a few pictures of this species online, from Japan at the Okinawa Slug Site, from Queensland, Australia, from Komodo, Indonesia, and from Raja Ampat, Indonesia.
