Cyerce sp. 04 is characterized by lines of small brownish spots on the head, cerata, and on the rhinophores. The flat cerata are translucent clear with orange/yellow spots at the margin, there is also purple pigment near the margin.
The cerata are can easily be cast off (autotomised) when the animal is disturbed.
This above specimens are most likely very small, that is juveniles, possibly of Cyerce sp. 02  Genus: Bergh, 1871 or of Cyerce bourbonica  Yonow, 2012. I can't tell for sure, that is why I keep it as Cyerce sp. 04  Genus: Bergh, 1871
