Similar to Noumea romeri but lacks any trace of the white margin. These animals are a uniform pink all over the body, but the shade of pink varies between specimens. They range in length up to about 14mm, and like N. romeri, have vibratile gills. Several specimens at Kwajalein have been found feeding on what appears to be the same pink sponge eaten by the similarly coloured Noumea simplex in the photos posted Aug. 22, 2001.
