@turb I think this might be our first flatworm sighting from WA. Can you identify?

The specimen exhibits the typical eye pattern of Fletchamia. It also appears to have a faint indication of a median dark stripe anteriorly, hence identifying it as a Fletchamia sp. rather than Fletchamia sp. cf sugdeni.
