Planarian is species of Phylum Platyhelminthes, Class Turbellaria. Planarian is acelomate triplobastic animal, with a body of
bilateral simetry and lives in clear freshwater, marine, and terrestrial as its habitat. Planarian reproduces asexually with fragmentation
and sexually with gamet formation. The aim of this study was to describe planarian’s sexual reproduction organ development level in
mount Slamet slope’s water, Baturraden, Banyumas. Planarians were obtained by baiting with fresh chicken liver; location of sampling
on Mount Slamet were Curug Bayan, Lokawisata Baturraden, and Telaga Sunyi, Baturraden, Banyumas. Samples were fi xated with
Bouin and stained with Hematoxylin and Eosin for histological structure to identify the sexual reproduction organ development stage.
The results were analyzed descriptively. Total number of obtained planarian varied, however it wasn’t signifi cantly diferrent among
sampling locations. Planarians of Curug Bayan were mostly in small to moderate size with ovary development of stage 2, testis of stage
3 and some of stage 5. Planarians of Lokawisata Baturraden were mostly in small to moderate size with ovary development of stage 2
and testis of stage 1. Planarians of Telaga Sunyi were mostly in moderate and big size with ovary development of stage 4 and testis of stage 4. It was concluded that planarian of Telaga Sunyi, with mostly moderate and big size, had the most matured sexual reproduction
organs development. More natural water condition including lower temperature and abundant litter in Telaga Sunyi allows suitable
habitat for planarian survival and planarian breeding.
