It is a small species (size 25-40 mm (2 specimens)), with numerous yellow-brown tube feet which are denser below. Spicules are distinctive, even cruciform plates, minute rosettes and rods (S. distincta spicules, S. distincta spicules 2). This species has been dredged from Broome, Western Australia.
