I can't see whether it is

I can't see whether it is segmented (like an earthworm), but if not this is possibly a nematode worm. There are thousands of species and they have many different ecological relationships. Many (like the potato eelworm) are parasitic on plants.

I'm afraid none of my pictures could be blown up enough to say whether there are segments on this body.
