Although holes in our strawberries have usually been occupied by millipedes, on occasions we have found flatworms like this one inside a hole in a strawberry.

  1. David Francis  Has this been identified as Parakontikia ventrolineata by Dr Leigh Winsor on the Bowerbird website?

    • Suzanne Jones  No. I had sent him some specimens and he had wondered if these photos might have been of the Parakontikia atrata that I had sent him. But we hadn't sent this particular flatworm. We had let it go in the wet grass. I guess this photo would be of either Parakontikia atrata or Parakontikia ventrolineata, but can't judge by these particular photos. Sorry. My later observation on Natureshare of a flatworm on a strawberry is of Parakontikia ventrolineata. You can see the stripes in the photo, but stripes are not apparent in these two photos.
