Notes on the Natural History of Terrestrial Leech, Haemopis septagon Sawyer and Shelley

Record #:
One terrestrial leech, Haemopis septagon, inhabits North Carolina in the swamps and moist floodplains of the eastern Piedmont and Coastal Plain. It was discovered in 1972 and is one of the newest additions to the state's known fauna. Large earthworms appear to be the primary food source.
