Similar appearance to A. incommoda but is a more delicate species, and the segments of the cirri are longer than they are broad (unlike those ofÂ Â Â Â Â A.incommoda). The species tends to be patchily distributed among plants and animals on reefs, with high numbers in one area but none in apparently similar habitat nearby.
