Gymnodoris nigricolor is characterized by a small, soft, and limaciform body, with a long and slender 'tail'. It is solid black, but in some specimens translucent gray, densely speckled with black. There are small pustules about where mantle margin should be, especially in the V shaped anterior end.
Reports of Gymnodoris nigricolor from various sources, including the Sea Slug Forum and the Okinawa Slug Site, suggests it is a parasite on the fins of shrimp gobies.
