Hello,

A friend of mine just found this in the Arabian gulf and we don't know what it is.
It was at the depth of 18m and was 5 cm long.
Original color is brown, by the way. And the image isn't mine.

Any idea what this is?

Flatworm, indeed.

Pseudobiceros or Pseudoceros, but not one I recognise.

Hard to tell due to the lack of light, but appears to be a Pseudobiceros bedfordi.
