Turbellarians live all over the world.

The regrowth abilities of turbellarians have been studied extensively by scientists who want to understand healing and cell regrowth in humans. Several species of turbellarians kill food animals such as oysters, and a few species cause disease in ornamental fishes used in aquariums.

The World Conservation Union (IUCN) lists one species of turbellarians as Extinct, or no longer in existence.
