Thanks Karen! Maybe. I hope it's not a gut worm that I picked up while in Africa or Middle East (if so, symptoms are minor). It's mouth seems to have three parts and be suction-cup shaped. I'm not seeing any pictures of leaches online that look like it, but that's what it's mouth reminds me of. It was dead when I found it, so I can't observe it's behavior or hatch it out:(. It might help if I mention my location east of the cascades a few miles south of Canada.
You are welcome. And, thanks to the links you provided in your last post, I think we can say that we've identified him. Teamwork!
Now, I've read today that they can be very destructive to your lawn, flowers and vegetables. What to do? If I didn't find large numbers of them or if their damage wasn't noticable, I'd probably just keep an eye out for now. If they're destroying lots, I did see beneficial nematodes listed as a solution. Should you start another thread and consult the masses? I wonder if chickens like them.
With forty shades of green, it's hard to be blue.
