I had been scanning through all websites on MARINE FLATWORMS, but I did not find a picture of this species, maybe there are some at NUDIPIXEL within the 629 Unidentified polyclad flatworm pictures.
I label it Pseudocerotidae sp. 03, because my best guess is that it should be placed in the family Pseudocerotidae  Lang, 1884,
It is characterized by minute opaque white spots on the light cream body, giving a whitish granular appearance, and by a diffuse orange-brown marginal band, with a narrow black rim.
Very similar is Maiazoon orsaki  Newman & Cannon, 1996 which differs by a thin white median line, and by marginal ruffles, and lacks the minute opaque white spots.
