I am getting something like what the original poster was describing. I don't have 1 right now to post a pic but they're usually about an inch long black, slimy, sticky, and smell a little bit like tar. I looked at 1under a jewelers loop but couldn't quite tell if it had a mouth or other features. I usually find em dead- they're very "tary" they stick to everything and are hard to clean up.

Now that the rainy season has begun, they're showing up again. They seem to come in after rains onto the cement floor of my lanai. Anyone else? Anyone?

Flatworms

Platydemus manokwari - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

You must change the environmental condition in order to reduce their numbers. They eat snails.

If you read the entire link, it will scare the heck out of you. Remember it is 14%. Just don't touch them anymore.

Okay, thanks for the link. That does look like I'm dealing with flatworms. I also like to grow vegetables on my lani so they could be a problem.
