DNA Barcoding Reveals Cryptic Diversity in Lumbricus terrestris L., 1758 (Clitellata): Resurrection of L. herculeus (Savigny, 1826)
TLDR
Large numbers of DNA barcode sequences of the cytochrome oxidase I obtained for nominal L. terrestris and six congeneric species reveal that there are two distinct lineages within nominal L, herculeus, and the two are morphologically indistinguishable, except by overlapping size-related characters. Expand
Cryptic Diversity in the Ubiquist Species Parisotoma notabilis (Collembola, Isotomidae): A Long-Used Chimeric Species?
TLDR
The sequencing of the barcoding fragment for several populations throughout Europe and North America revealed four distinct genetic lineages, and the species name was successfully assigned to one of these lineages. Expand
Barcoding the Collembola of Churchill: a molecular taxonomic reassessment of species diversity in a sub‐Arctic area
TLDR
The systematic barcoding campaign at Churchill revealed a diverse collembolan fauna consisting of 97 species‐level MOTUs in six types of habitats, far higher than prior records for Arctic Canada and could lead to reconsider the actual diversity of the group in Arctic environments. Expand
Challenging species delimitation in Collembola: cryptic diversity among common springtails unveiled by DNA barcoding
TLDR
Several populations of six well characterised species of springtails were sequenced using the COI barcode fragment as a contribution to the global Collembola barcoding campaign, and each species showed high intraspecific divergence. Expand
Coupling non‐destructive DNA extraction and voucher retrieval for small soft‐bodied Arthropods in a high‐throughput context: the example of Collembola
TLDR
The lysis step substantially shortens the clearing process necessary for morphological examination, allowing voucher specimen recovery for Collembola and by extension for other soft‐bodied small arthropods. Expand
Biological invasions in soil: DNA barcoding as a monitoring tool in a multiple taxa survey targeting European earthworms and springtails in North America
TLDR
It is established that invasive species surveys employing DNA barcoding gain additional resolution over those based on morphology as they allow evaluation of cryptic lineages exhibiting different invasion histories. Expand
DNA barcodes for soil animal taxonomy
TLDR
As ferramentas de identificacao usando DNA podem facilitar e melhorar a exploracao da biodiversidade e a sua descricao, considerando as dificuldades taxonomicas enfrentadas para identificar os animais de solo. Expand
New insight into the genetic structure of the Allolobophora chlorotica aggregate in Europe using microsatellite and mitochondrial data
TLDR
Microsatellite data confirmed that the green morph represents a single taxon and microsatellites provided evidence for hybridization between lineages and between morphs in the field, and mitochondrial data revealed the existence of two additional mitochondrial lineages within the pink morph. Expand
Eupolybothrus cavernicolus Komerički & Stoev sp. n. (Chilopoda: Lithobiomorpha: Lithobiidae): the first eukaryotic species description combining transcriptomic, DNA barcoding and micro-CT imaging data
TLDR
This pilot project illustrates a workflow of producing, storing, publishing and disseminating large data sets associated with a description of a new taxon, and creates a high-resolution morphological and anatomical dataset that allows virtual reconstructions of the specimen and subsequent interactive manipulation to test the recently introduced ‘cybertype’ notion. Expand
Re‐integrating earthworm juveniles into soil biodiversity studies: species identification through DNA barcoding
TLDR
It is shown that DNA barcoding is an unrivaled tool for high volume identification of juvenile earthworms and the analysis of genetic distances between individuals shows that juvenile sequences unequivocally match DNA barcode clusters of previously identified adult specimens, demonstrating the potential of DNA barCoding to provide exhaustive specimen identification for soil ecological research.
