Pontohedyle milaschewitchii is a species of sea slug, an acochlidian, a shell-less marine gastropod mollusk in the family Microhedylidae.[2]

The radula of Pontohedyle milaschewitchii shows that the lateral radula tooth (rlp) is with a denticle (arrowhead).[2]


The life cycle of all Acochlidiacea is not well known. Pontohedyle milaschewitchii lays a maximum of 40 eggs.[2]
