Trapania miltabrancha is characterized by a brownish/orange background colour, covered with an irregular reticulate pattern of dark brown. Scattered all over the dark brown are small opaque white spots. The oral tentacles are brown with small white spots, the rhinophores and gills are transparent with some straw coloured and dark brown patching. The extrarhinophoral and extrabranchial appendages are white with black apices.
Known before only from Indonesia, but as Gordon R. Tillen writes: "here is the proof that they are alive and well in Dauin, Negros Oriental, Philippines."
