Abstract

During the spring of 1941, Dr. C.L. Hayward, of the Brigham Young University zoology department, while on a field trip with his ecology class found some interesting planaria.ns at a place called Stewart's Flats on Mt. Timpanogos, Utah County, Utah. A fellow teacher, Dr. D. E. Beck, sent live specimens to Dr. L. H. Hyman of the American Museum of Natural History for identification. Although the specimens arrived in New York as a "putrid smelling soup,"1 the specimens, through correspondence, were thought to be Polycelis coronata (Girard), the same species Hyman collected in South Dakota during August 1929.
