Dear Valda,
These animals can only really be sorted out by looking at their animals. This species has quite a few similarities to Armina sp. 4 but the colours are not so intense and there are far fewer longitudinal ridges. However the best I can do is call it Armina sp. 5..
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman.
