Abstract

Specimens of Bipalium adventitium (Platyhelminthes, Geoplanidae) were found in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The specimens showed the typical colour pattern of the species and barcoding (Cytochrome Oxidase I) demonstrated near-identity with a sequence of the same species from the USA. This is the first record of the species in Canada.
