Let me quote the description of Chelidonura amoena in IPN:"This species can be distinguished by whitish color with yellow marginal lines on the parapodia, headshield and posterior shield, with varying amounts of grey pigment." The gray pigment is usually in large diffuse patches, in some specimens is it reddisch/maroon, always densely covered with minute white spots.
Like many other members of this genus is Chelidonura amoena reported to feed on small flatworms
