Australoplana minor

The Little planarian

Body at rest much flattened; when crawling, nearly cylindrical, tapering very gradually in front and more suddenly behind, and measuring 10-25 mm in length. The eyes contour the anterior tip, and continue in a staggered row along the sides, becoming more sparse towards the hind end. Colour is milk-white all over, sometimes with a yellowish tinge.
