Question, dugesia planaria, what are these?

Ok, I am sure someone knows about these little guys, I think I remember a posting or two a couple months ago. BUt anyways, in one of my tanks I noticed little 1-3mm long wormy looking things. I think they are called planaria or dugesia or something similar. I was wondering if anyone had more info on these things. I thought I had noticed a few on darker colored gravel, but now that they are cruising around on the glass I am certain I am not seeing things.They are just these little white worms that are doing a really good job at cleaning up some junk on the front piece of glass.
