Comment from Marian Litvaitis on photo #2234
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.
