Trapania sp. 11 is characterized by its brownish-tan colour, and by its tuberculate body, extrarhinophoral and extrabranchial appendages. There is a brown ring on the oral tentacles, pretty similar to Trapania armilla, which differs by its solid white body, and by two bifurcated extra-branchial appendages. This specimen has oral tentacles with orange tips.
This species is similar to Trapania sp. 6 in Gosliner et al. (2015), which differs by red/orange marking in the outer part of the extra-branchial appendages and lacks the brown ring on the oral tentacles, and has a uniformly pale tan colour.
