So where is the references to 'Planaria' all gone now? --Quatermass 01:59, 30 January 2012 (CST)

Planaria is a type of (genus?) of Convolutriloba. It seems to me many hobbists use "flatworm" and "planaria" interchangeably despite needing quite different mode of control. Perhaps we should keep just a "planaria" stub to describe this problem and point the reader to "Flatworm"? --Brian Low 20:41, 13 February 2012 (CST)
As long as we have something that explains what Planaria then I'm happy. Though to be fair there should be a stub on flatworm and Planaria and each has a reference to the actual genus name. That way we keep users of either common name happy. --Quatermass 03:30, 14 February 2012 (CST)
Fully agree with you both. While we want to correctly identify all species, we need to remember that many people will come thinking they have X, when they really have Y. We just need to make sure we get them to Y :) --Brian 06:56, 14 February 2012 (CST)
