Dear worm people:
Change of Phylum!
Does anyone know of damage caused by the terrestrial planarian Bipalium
kewense? There is a second finding of this after it's originally being
reported in Israel in 1976 by H. Mienis (Israel J. Zool.).
Anyhow one living specimen of this interesting creature arrived in my lab
from the central area of Israel, and it could be due to a second
introduction. Information on whether to add this to the issues Israelis need
to panic about is welcome.
