Phyllidia elegans is characterized by a white to pale pink mantle with white to pale pink tubercles, often yellow capped. It has a median longitudinal black line on the sole and black lines on its sides.
Pretty similar is the Indian Ocean species Phyllidia alyta which has not yet been reported from the Philippines.
