Subnotable, Active (South) Polar Region?

Regarding the M4 April Fools flare,268-sdo.gif

look down near the south pole:  There appears to be a little cluster of flare activity, with at least one—albeit weak—mid to high A or low B flare?

Would this be a low grade/subnotable high latitude region of the new cycle, or just normal, perculating, flaring flux that occurs at the poles?

Or is it actually part of the M4 flare—one of those “connector flares”, that appear to erupt at two distinctively different areas of the sun at the same time, like they are connected, somehow, subterraneously?

Not sure what it could be. But nothing there on the HMI images. There was a little pop in the southern polar coronal hole if you look at the 193A SDO AIA images that just shows up strongly on these difference images I guess. Not a new region of the next cycle that's for sure. See this video:

If it was a new region (and Iʼm not arguing that point...I have no clue! P=), why wouldnʼt it be from the new cycle—donʼt the new regions of a new cycle start near the poles, then as the cycle progresses, start closer and closer to the equator?

Yes it would be from the new cycle but they do not pop up at such extremely high latitudes. Anyway there is nothing to see on the SDO HMI images, no spots, no flux so its nothing interesting. :) Just a little solar burp
