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 Unidentified polyclad flatworm pictures, this website is down, the pictures are gone.
I place it tentatively in the genus Thysanozoon  Grube, 1840, because of the papillae, it might be as well a species of Acanthozoon  Collingwood, 1876, which possess only a single male copulative organ contrary to Thysanozoon.
I have added a second picture to show the pseudotentacles and the cerebral eyespots (behind the pseudotentacles) which confirmed it is a flatworm.
