Little, Black, Slimy Worms Found on Lawn Could be Flatworms

“I found these worms in Ohio last night”, states Annakah in her submission regarding the slimy-looking, black worm-like creatures pictured below. “They’re about 1-2 inches long. The surrounding habitat is mostly maple-dominated forest with moss growing side by side with the grass in the lawn. They apparently had climbed 10-15 feet up a house to get where they are pictured. Do you know what they are?” Based on the photo alone, we would say these look like little flatworms, though it is difficult to tell given the low resolution of the image, and how small they are. That said, the moist environment and the size of the creatures would add up with this conclusion.
