Last fall I bought some super red night crawlers to enrich my daylily flower bed since the soil just didn't seem rich enough. This spring, I could barely move the top of the soil and there would be plenty of worms. I was very excited and my daylilies bloomed very well. After a rain and when my sprinkler goes off early in the morning, I see these things crawling on the walkway by my flower bed. At first, I thought they must be the red night crawlers, but they're not red. If they are worms, what type are they? I'm curious because I also have seen some land planariums which I understand eat earthworms as well as slugs and snail which seem to be everywhere also.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Sorry but that is outside my area of expertise. I agree that they don't look exactly like worms but they also don't have the triangular head often seen on land planariums. Here is a web site with more info on land planariums:
What can I ask about this?
Sorry,"WHO" can I ask about this?
I don't think those worms are a threat to your plants or cause for concern. We don't have a specialist on worm of that type. I'm not sure who you might ask but it would be a biologist with that expertise.
