Platydemus manokwari
Platydemus manokwari, also known as the New Guinea flatworm, is a species of large predatory land flatworm. It is an invasive species.
Native to New Guinea, it has been accidentally introduced to the soil of many countries. It was also deliberately introduced into two Pacific islands in an attempt to control an invasion of the Giant East African Snail. It eats a variety of invertebrates including land snails, and has had a significant negative impact on the rare endemic land snail fauna of some Pacific islands. It has become established in a wide variety of habitats.

New guinea flatworm (Platydemus manokwari)
At rest the flatworm is broadest in the middle, tapering to each end. In cross-section, the back is gently convex and the belly is flat. Mature live specimens are approximately 40 mm long and 4 to 5 mm wide. Some specimens may attain a length of 70 mm. The mouth is just behind the mid-point of the belly, with a genital pore about half-way between the mouth and hind end. Two large prominent eyes are situated back from the tip of the elongate snout-like head. The back is light to dark olive-brown, and darkest on either side of the pale creamish-white stripe that runs along the mid-back and at the margins. The olive-brown colour grades to grey at the head end. A thin creamish-white stripe with fine greyish margins runs the length of the body along each side. The belly is creamish-white, with a white mid-ventral stripe. A pale sensory zone passes around the underside of the front end. Newly emerged hatchlings are up to 8 mm long, with a pale brownish-grey colour extending dorsally and submarginally, a thin pale median dorsal stripe, white ventral surface, and prominent eyes. A general account of the anatomy of a terrestrial flatworm is provided by Winsor et al. (2004), and detailed anatomical data for P. manokwari are provided by Winsor (1990, 1998d), and Kawakatsu et al. (1992).
