Marionfyfea adventor

Gibster's picture

An alien species of terrestrial flatworm, this appears to be the first Scottish record (and the northernmost in the world!) Undoubtedly much more widespread than currently understood and well worth looking out for if you're in the habit of checking underneath debris/logs/rocks. This individual was beneath a boulder in deciduous woodland on the Isle of Skye.
