Suggest the species belong to Turbellaria: Polycladida

It is unfortunate that the specimens are poorly preserved and observations could not be made on live creatures. Please refer to Libbie Hyman's The Invertebrata, Turbellaria, Polycladida. I redescribed 2 marine flatworms living on ascidians and bryozoans. I suggest that the remarkable shape of the new species conform to their habitat and food source. H. L. Ching: 1977.
