This survey was carried out from January 1966 through January 1971, although the intensive portion occurred in 1969 and 1970. Collections from 61 sites yielded eight species: Cura foremanii, Dugesia dorotocephala, Dugesia tigrina, Phagocata gracilis, Phagocata morgani, Phagocata veIata, Phagocata vernalis and Procotyta fluviatilis. Observations at collection sites included water temperature relative abundance and type of substrate. The distribution of C. foremanii, D. dorotocephala, D. tigrina and P. morgani was essentially state-wide. Phagocata gracilis ranged throughout the middle and western portions of the state, whereas P. velata, P. vernalis and Pr. fluviatilis occurred at only a few sites. Unpublished records on local areas from investigations other than ours have been included.
