Planocerid Flatworm

Spotted moving quickly over the sand when we were investigating a local dive site, we thought at first that we had a new species of Nudibranch. Examination of the photos and much web browsing revealed the fact that some flatworms have “head tentacles” that can be mistaken for rhinophores.
Question – why is a new nudi more exciting than a new flatworm ? !
