Cerberilla sp. 02 is charakterized by a translucent pale tan colour. The cerata have two brown lontitudinal lines on the anterior side. There is a diffuse orange patch between the oral tentacles which are of the same colour as the body except of the diffuse orange outer half. The rhinophores are also of the same colour as the body except of the brownish outer half and the whith apices.
This species is most likely as Cerberilla sp. 7 in Gosliner et al. (2015), page 394.
