It seems a planaria (flat worm) but this is just the phyllum.

Likely a Dalyelliid (such as Microdalyellia and Gieysztoria), with "caudal adhesive papillae" (those little lobes at the end of the tail). If the oval bodies are eggs, as I suspect, that might help rule out some genera (I believe eggs are distributed like this in some Dalyellida).

Unfortunately, I don't know enough about microturbellaria, to rule out Macrostomum.... :( Great pictures, though! :)
