This small ghostshark has a distinct network of light and dark reticulations along its flank, and lacks an anal fin like other Hydrolagus spp.. The teeth are beak-like towards the front of the mouth, and plate-like with pronounced knobs towards the back of the mouth. Males have very long, slender trifurcated claspers with extensive bristle patches.
