Eunicea pinta grows in tall colonies with very long thin branches, its branches: are flexible and soft, elongated, undivided before they reach 50 cm in length or more, and show a small terminal bulb that is 2.0 - 2.5 mm wide.

The gorgonian can produce a little slime, but is not slimy.

Colour: Beige to white

Habitat: Oceanic reefs to a depth of 70 metres.

Remarks: There are very few records of this species.
