Worms that Crawl Together

A reader wrote to us recently about a group of worms that he observed moving together – that is, the worms were seen crawling “as one,” such that the worms appeared to be traveling “one over the other to get to their destination.” The reader further observed that the worms were relatively small, and that the group consisted of about 50 worms. What type of worms move together, and further, why do worms crawl together as a group anyhow?
