Description:

Orange/brown flatworm? 5cm long, 5mm wide. Small, actively mobile protuberance at one end (shown at the top in the photo also containing grass blades) - is this an original feature of the organism or traumatic in origin? Found it in the garden whilst weeding around fruit bushes. I have not found anything like it before. There were several healthy earthworms in the same square foot of soil.
