Whiteworm Enchytreaus albidus

Below a small white worm. Actually we had no idea what we were talking about. Luckily Rob Baerselman made a good suggestion. According to him this is a relative of the Earth Worm, belonging to a group called... Whiteworms. The creatures are white, thinner and much smaller, reaching some 2 centimeters in length only. It is used in tracing pollution, for in contrast to its cousins the earthworms, which are very tolerant, they stand an extremely limited amount of pollution only. And that by itself is good news for us, because we see the creature in our garden regularly. During rainy days it can be found above the earth, especially in mosses.
