Identification of possible slug

Asked April 22, 2018, 2:43 PM EDT

Hi, My daughter Emily Mulcahy sent me some photos of what looks to be a slug or possibly a parasite. She lives in Bel Air, Maryland. Would someone please help us with identification. Thank you, Lise Gilliland Bisbee, AZ.

We think this is a type of flatworm, possibly Bipalium pennsylvanicum, which has been reported in Harford County.


Thank you for the speedy reply.

This is probably not a native species (though the name sounds native) and your daughter can eliminate it without remorse.
