T. manicata is a small nudibranch, with a maximum body length of 13mm. The body is white with dark red, green or black pigment spots on its back. The edges of the mantle bear paired, branched gills, 4 pairs in an 11mm specimen. The rhinophores have sheaths and are branched at the tips. There are 3-4 pairs of long, slender oral tentacles. Easily distinguished from Tritonia plebeia by the longer oral processes and its distinctive coloration.
