Flat Worm???

Observed: 14th June 2013 By: jonny4sheds

About an inch long swimming in a drainage pool, occasionally breaching the surface with the narrow end. Initially I thought a flat worm but it seems to have legs! This pool is part of a drainage ditch that regularly dries out. There were a number of palmate newts in the pool too.

Species interactions

No interactions present.
