Prostheceraeus sp. from Lankayan, Malaysia
Identification verified by Marian Litvaitis
 

Identification is verified by Marian Litvaitis, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Marian Litvaitis: Belongs to the genus Prostheceraeus. Although it looks very similar to Prostheceraeus bellostriatus, it probably is a new species.

Prostheceraeus bellostriatus has a characteristic orange marginal band and a median orange line which is missing in your specimen. Prostheceraeus belong to the polyclad family Euryleptidae.
