Follow-up, should be "dwarf nova-type helium CVs with infrequent outbursts".
Although AM CVn-type object with SU UMa-type outbursts include CP Eri, V803 Cen,
KL Dra and CR Boo, they usually have more frequent and relatively regular
outbursts. CRTS observation did not detect past outbursts for this J0208.
