This species is only known from one specimen. It is white with a thin yellow mantle border and scattered yellowish patches on the mantle. The rhinophores are translucent colourless with the edges of the lamellae opaque white. The gills are also translucent white. The radular teeth and reproductive system are typical of the genus Noumea. Until further specimens are available we won't know if this species has much colour variation.
See Noumea cf. sudanica.
