Hermaea sp. 10 is characterized by its translucent body and cerata with pale tan spots/patches. The cerata are very inflated, the thick digestive gland within the cerata is brown in the lower half, then it branches and is covered with pale tan spots. The rhinophores are clear with pale tan speckling.
To my knowledge are the above pictures the only ones of this species, it is not in IPN nor in Gosliner et al. (2015).
