Hi Wolfgang,

I'd send a couple of specimens off to the Museum or even the Zoology/Veterinary department of a University, with some background information and a polite request for an identification. Shouldn't take too long.

Cheers,

Nige

thy feed on alge mosses and waste so i noticed

If they are feeding then they are not earth worms. Earthworms tend to move around when it rains and that response means they get lost and end up in ponds, until they starve as they cannot feed underwater.

Most of the worms you find that live in ponds are briste worms or smaller roundworm types.

If they are feeding - I think the only way to know is professional ID, or just feed them to your goldies!
