This species has a thin, transparent, cylindrical shell with fine, evenly-spaced spiral striae. The living animal is translucent-cream flecked with white and violet-brown. It almost always has a cluster of violet-brown flecks on top of its head behind the head shield. It may be distinguished from Liloa porcellana by that trait, by its thinner shell and by the presence of spiral striae in the center of the shell at all sizes.
Liloa mongii is nocturnal and buries itself in sand during the day.
