Species of the genera Paraplanocera  Laidlaw, 1903 here or here and Prostheceraeus  Schmarda, 1859 here are often mistaken for sealugs because of their head tentacles.
Let me quote Dr.Wolfgang Seifarth on flatworms:" Since the worms have tentacles at the anterior end and often have brilliant colours they are occasionally mistaken for nudibranchs. But in contrast to nudibranchs, tentacles are mostly simple folds of the anterior margin. They can move along much faster than nudibranchs, are much thinner and tend to break up if handled."
For more informations visit his website Marine Flatworms of the World!
Let me quote the Wild Singapore website: "Tentative identification. Species are difficult to positively identify without close examination."
I have added on 10 September 2012 a site with links to websites on MARINE FLATWORMS
