Hermaea sp. 08 is characterized by its translucent clear body with minute white spots which concentrate on the head. The cerata are translucent with minute white spots. The thick branched digestive glands are pinkish. The rhinophores are basally translucent with white speckling, followed by a yellowish/greenish median band, and whitish apices.
