Red/orange spots all over face and body. Spots on body look like vertical rectangles and tend to form rows. Almost identical to T. okinawae whose body spots are more circular in appearance and appear more randomly distributed. To 3cm.
Also very similar to T macropthalmus, but has slightly larger, often merged spots on lower head.
