5.5 in. when flat with segmented ridges down the length, appears to have been long rectangular thing.

Any ideas what this is?

Thanks

Couldn't do much with the picture but it looks suspiciously like a tapeworm to me - especially if the segments look flat and rectangular. Where did you find it?

If the above image is related to your previous post (below), then I think Blakestyger is correct.
