Description: Platydemus manokwari de Beauchamp, 1963, experimental predation on indigenous snail. The flatworm is preying on a snail: it has been disturbed, thus showing the white cylindrical pharynx on the ventral side, protruding and ingesting soft tissues of the snail. The prey is the helicid Eobania vermiculata, a common snail of the Mediterranean region.
