Flatworm

Geoplanidae sp.

Description:

This Flatworm is black with a white risk. It was under a dead trunk, and, when I catch it,start to make "contortion". A defense form, maybe.

Habitat:

I found this specimens in a region of transition between the Atlantic Forest and Cerrado, under a dead trunk near a river.
