I think the largest native aquatic flatworm is still D. dorotocephala...but
that some of the introduced terrestrial flatworms can be larger. There is a
population of an exotic in NE LA, but I have not yet seen any.
I live in South Eastern North Carolina near the state ports. I have often
wondered if these huge flat worms were introduced from shipments from over
seas. The ones I find are often as long as 250 mm.
