This species is known to occur from Coffs Harbour in northern New South Wales to the eastern waters of South Australia. The mantle of this species is coloured yellow and the mantle is covered many rounded tubercules and each tubercule generally has a small black spot but there may be as many as three spots on each tubercule.
