Phidiana militaris is characterized by a white body with longitudinal orange or red lines on each side of the body and a median line. The lines branch running up the anterior edge of each oral tentacle. The cerata are brown with a longitudinal orange or red line and with yellowish tips having a bluish line. The oral tentacles, rhinophores, tentacular foot corners and cerata are all tipped with yellow and there is a broad orange band on the rhinophores.
Very similar is Caloria indica. They can be distinguished by the line between the rhinophores: Caloria indica has a white line on an orange head, Phidiana militaris has an orange or red line on a white head.
