(Platyhelminthes: Tricladida: Terricola) Predaceous on Terrestrial Gastropods
The Tricladida serves as a useful repository in the general sense for freeliving and symbiotic planarians (all the non-neodermatans) without implying monophyly of these taxa (Rohde, 1994).

A review of the status of the New Zealand flatworm in the UK
The New Zealand flatworm, Arthurdendyus triangularis, is one of the most widespread and apparent of these non-indigenous earthworm predators, particularly in Northern Ireland and central Scotland, and a better understanding is needed of the precise habitat requirements (and constraints) of this species.
A revision of the cosmopolitan land planarian Bipalium kewense Moseley, 1878 (Turbellaria: Tricladida: Terricola)
The bipaliid fauna of Vietnam, to which B. kewense belongs, appears to have closer phenetic affinities with the faunas of adjacent southern rather than northern regions.
Histochemical and ultrastructural features of the epidermis of the land planarian Bipalium adventitium
The epidermis of the creeping sole is distinguished from that of adjoining regions by a “insunken” condition of the epithelial cells, a greater number of cilia per cell, and an absence of glandular secretions other than mucus.
Effect of Weight and Temperature upon Oxygen Consumption of the Land Planarian Bipalium kewense
Larger planarians were more sensitive than smaller planarians to the higher temperatures, although the b value of the worms did not change greatly with the shifts in temperature.
