Chrysallida emanciata is small pyramidellid opisthobranch which like other species of Chrysallida is parasitic on small bivalve molluscs. Very little information is known about this specie and often such knowledge is gained by studies on dead shells rather than the live animal itself. The live animal is white and very small often less than 3mm in total (animal + shell).
