I haven't seen any; I've seen smaller pinkish worms in temporary pools and
deeper, more water-filled ditches. I think that they were merely the
"terrestrial" earthworms or perhaps they were Lumbricid or Lumbrucilid worms
which were more aquatic. Speaking of which, Does anyone know whether or not
the more "terrestrial" earthworms venture into bodies of water like these
very often or do they avoid them? I'm just wondering because I don't think
that I could tell them apart very well right now, but knowing whether or not
the more land-based variety ventures into water or not on purpose or
otherwise would definitely help.
