Hello Simone, my latin spelling is probably way off but I think you are
They are brownish in color and anywhere in size upwards to 200 centimeters
long and almost a centimeter in width they are noted for having a body
comprised of ring segments with a wider band near the middle that is the
breading collar. They are a-sexual and any two get together and attach at
the band when mating. They are typicaly found in rich moist leaf mold or
soil and eat decaying vegetable matter.
