User's notes

Seems to be a non-local species, I have no idea how it would have gotten here. Found near a creek margin, under a log, first species of flatworm for RHN.

The species is probably non-local, though the natural range of this SE Queensland species is not known. It could extend south a long way. Outside of urban gardens and obvious human-modified habitat, I have found it along creek margins, along with P. atrata, originally described from northern NSW.
