Armina scotti has recently been described (first online 18 April 2017). It "is characterized by its black dorsum with pale yellowish notal ridges, widened forming three rounded blotches, not divergent posteriorly, not bifurcated; oral veil white, with a pale blue submarginal band and yellow edge; white rhinophores with a black subterminal band, which is pale blue on the inner-front sides, orange tips, and a black stripe running to the sides of the oral veil." Quoted from Mehrotra, Caballer Gutierrez & Chavanich (2017)
Very similar is Armina semperi (Bergh, 1866) which differs by the black rhinophores with reddish tips, and by the reddish margin of its dorsum. The specimen #1 was misidentified and posted on 6 February 2011 at these websites as Armina semperi (Bergh, 1866),
the senior author of Armina scotti Rahul Mehrotra confirmed my 'new' identification.
