Kaloplocamus acutus is characterized by a mantle which ranges in colour
from pale yellow-orange to a deep orange red. The branched papillae have translucent
white stalks with some scattered opaque white pigmentation and the pointed branches
are bright orange or orange-red. There are scattered white specks on the body. The
six branched papillae on the head shield or veil are pretty long when extended, longer than
in Plocamopherus. There are four
branched papillae down each side of the body and a slight ridge between them denotes
the mantle edge.
