Prostheceraeus giesbrechtii from Hyères, France
 

Thanks to Jordi Regàs and Senda for suggesting identification for this species

Comment from Jordi Regàs: I have always considered this as Prostheceraeus roseus. This is confirmed by Carles Novell's doctoral tesis about Mediterranean flatworms, whch you can find at http://dialnet.unirioja.es/servlet/tesis?codigo=3327 He explains also the usual confusion between P.roseus and P.giesbrechtii (on page 174). Best regards!
Comment from Senda: Hi, this planarian is a Prostheceraeus roseus, not giesbrechtii!!!!
