This little beauty, Echiura alveolar has a primal “mouth” that traps and eats flies and gnats.
There is a sticky bump below its teeth that smells like pineapple. The scent lures the flies in but the teeth trap them inside, because flies jump up and back before they take to flight. It will be absorbed over a few hours.
