  Comment: Although listed as "Parascorpaena armata (Rüppell), Spiny stingfish [Sri Lanka], Scorpionfish [South Africa]" by Shiino (1976), which is why this name was added to the NODC Taxonomic Code (and thus to ITIS), no further information on the status of this name was found. More work is evidently needed to clarify the current status
