I had been scanning through all websites on flatworms, but I did not find a picture of a similar species, maybe there were some at NUDIPIXEL within the more than 600 pictures - as of 08 July 2012, the website NUDIPIXEL is down the pictures are gone.
I labeled it on 9 July 2012 Pseudocerotidae sp. 06, because my best guess was that it should be placed in the family Pseudocerotidae  Lang, 1884,
I changed it on 11 July 2012 into Phrikoceros sp. 02  Genus: Newman & Cannon, 1996 because Juliana Bahia writes at the Marine Flatworms group of facebook: "Looks like a Phrikoceros..."
It looks pretty similar to the picture of Bulaceros porcellanus  Newman and Cannon, 1996 in Gosliner et al., 1997 at page 97, except of the network of thin orange lines.
