Does anyone know what this is??

Recommended Posts

I've got this funny little worm crawling around on the trunk of my Dicksonia antarctica. It's got a black head and translucent body, and produces it's own silk, which to the naked eye looks like small slug/snail trail. It appears to be eating the algae, which is no bad thing to my mind. I reckon it's about 3mm long.

Thanks Ali Baba, I just googled it and it does look the same. I can't find any mention of it producing silk though. But I reckon you're right  
