Perhaps not quite our department, but anybody want to comment on this?

Yesterday I saw one of the most amazing things ever in my life, as I
watched a black-and-yellow racing-striped planarian chase a slug up a
tree, catch it, wrap around it, and kill it. Since there isn't any
"terrestrial planarian" mailing list, I thought I'd solicit here if anyone 
knows of this beastie - name, distribution, known prey habits, etc.
