Longest Earthworm?

I don't very often take photos of worms, though I'm pleased to say we do see a lot of them on our allotment plot - a sign of good healthy earth. I did think this one deserved a photo as it's so long (about 22cm)!

The Earthworm Society linked here don't mention record lengths but I'm sure this would be in with a chance! Because of that I'm thinking it's of the Anecic Earthworm group, which are the longest of the earthworm ecotypes.
