Thysanozoon sp. from Port Elizabeth, South Africa
 

Thanks to João Pedro Silva for suggesting identification for this species

Comment from the photographer: Thysanozoon brocchii (Carpet flatworm)
 

Comment from João Pedro Silva: It definitely looks like Thysanozoon brocchii commonly found in the Mediterranean and adjacent Atlantic, although it usually presents a light "cross" pattern on the top of the body.
