Usually 30mm long but incredibly stretchy.
Very dark blue (black-blue) with a single dorsal line of yellow to white.
The underside is paler but all colours can vary with the angle of light.
Found under a large wet log in an outer urban back yard along with another geoplanid species and many other small creatures.
Several of these found today which is no surprise considering the good rains we have had lately.
Although native to this part of the world they have been introduced to many other places now. Sorry overseas people but we have a lot of your lost critters too.
They prey on woodlice, small snails and slugs, other small arthropods everting their stomaches to ingest externally.
