Land planarians (Platyhelminthes) are likely important components of the soil cryptofauna, although relevant aspects of their ecology such as their density remain largely unstudied. The land planarian Bipalium univittatum Grube,1866 (Tricladida: Geoplanidae) is thought to be native from Southeast Asia. This species is found in Periyakallar, Valparai, Coimbatore district, Tamil Nadu state, India. This note gives details, distribution, description and conservation status
