Armina papillata can be distinguished from other arminaceans by the papillae on the oral veil. A specimen of this species from Port Stephens, Australia was identified by Kathe Jensen in 2005 on the Sea Slug Forum, with the comment:
"Other species with papillae are A. gracilis (Bergh, 1874), A. lugubris (Bergh, 1874), A. petersi (Bergh, 1866) and A. comta (Bergh, 1880). The number of papillae on the head differ in these species, and also the number of lateral lamellae (on the ventral surface of the mantle skirt)."
This species was posted on 9 February 2011 at these website as Armina cf. comta, Dr. Richard C. Willan wrote on 16 October 2014:
"I recommend you call it Armina papillata and you ignore Armina cf. comta."
It is still as Armina sp. 9 on Bill Rudman's Sea Slug Forum
