Hermaea sp. 06 is characterized by its translucent tan body with large maroon longitudinal patches at the sides and minute white spots. The cerata are translucent with some swellings like tubercles. There is white pigment on the apices of the cerata. The undulating digestive glands are maroon. The rhinophores are translucent with white speckling. The above specimen was by Dr. Richard C. Willan identified, thanks!
To my knowledge is this species not in IPN nor in Gosliner et al. (2015), nor at nudipixel nor elsewhere at the internet.
