Noumeaella sp. 04 is characterized by its solid pale cream colour. The papillate rhinophores are basally pale cream merging into translucent brownish, the oral tentacles are translucent brownish white spots. The cerata are arranged in tight clusters and have tiny papillae.
The identification was confirmed by Dr. Richard Willan, thanks!
To my knowledge are the above pictures the only ones of this species. It is not in IPN nor Gosliner et al. (2015) nor elsewhre at the internet.
