why CH2-CH2-CH2-CH2 in a ring not given in the isomers of butane.What do I call this compound

Cyclic (ring) structure of CH2-CH2-CH2-CH2 is called as cyclobutane.
Isomers are the compounds with same molecular formula but different structural formulae.
Butane has a formula of C4H10 while cyclobutane has a formula of C4H8. They are not isomers because they do not have the same molecular formula.
