Land Planaria

I got curious about little black wormlike animals on the ground when I would go out at night to kill slugs. I googled them, and it looks like they are land planaria. I read they are good because they eat snails and slugs, but bad because they eat earthworms. I have noticed a collapse of the small snail population lately. Maybe the land planaria have something to do with it? Anybody know more than I do?
