Mexichromis multituberculata is characterized by numerous purple-tipped large tubercules on the white body. Around the mantle edge are usually bluish-purple patches, in some specimens are these patches reddish or orange. The rhinophores and the gills are basal white, the upper half is bluish-purple.
Pretty similar are:
Mexichromis mariei which has an orange band or a series of orange patches at the edge of the mantle and flattened rounded tubercles, which are tipped in reddish-purple,
Mexichromis cf. mariei which differs by its few very small tubercles, which are tipped in white.
