 Hello there,
              I am in my second year of my MS in Entomology at Clemson,
  but have slipped into the world of annelids and platyhelminthes.
  Specificaly I have become fascinated with Bipalium kewense, a
  terrestrial planaria that appears to feed exclusively on earthworms.

 After doing a literature review by mainframe I turned up only 2 papers
 on this animal's predatory behavior and very little on its ecology. Is
 anyone out there working on this? I want to pursue this much farther
 in the coming years.

                                                Rolfp at clemson.edu
