A new species of the genus Armina, collected off the northern Caribbean coast of Colombia at depths of 310 and 460 m in soft bottoms is described. The number of notal ridges, the position of the genital papilla, the size and the shape of radular teeth and the features of the masticatory process are the main differences to other congeneric species occurring in Atlantic waters. Armina juliana n. sp. is the first record for the family Arminidae in the Colombian Caribbean.
