Improving ITS sequence data for identification of plant pathogenic fungi
A concerted effort was reported on to identify high-quality reference sequences for various plant pathogenic fungi and to re-annotate incorrectly or insufficiently annotated public ITS sequences from these fungal lineages, to enrich the sequences with geographical and ecological metadata.
Revision of Cognettia (Clitellata, Enchytraeidae): re-establishment of Chamaedrilus and description of cryptic species in the sphagnetorum complex
Five species within the Chamaedrilus sphagnetorum complex are revised and a key to the species in the complex is given and the value of different somatic characters for separating and identifying species of Chamaingrilus is discussed.
On the identity of Chamaedrilus glandulosus (Michaelsen, 1888) (Clitellata, Enchytraeidae), with the description of a new species
The two species are morphologically very similar, differing mainly in size, but seem to prefer different habitats, with Chamaedrilus glandulosus being a larger aquatic species, and Chamaingrilus varisetosusbeing smaller and mainly found in moist to wet soil.
On the genus Urytalpa Edwards (Diptera: Keroplatidae) in the Nordic and Nearctic regions, with fixation of a new type species and a key to world males
The five Nordic species of the genus Urytalpa Edwards are revised, of which one species, UryTalpa galdes Hedmark & Kjaerandsen, sp.
Cryptic speciation and limited hybridization within Lumbricus earthworms (Clitellata: Lumbricidae).
Seven well supported cryptic species within the morphospecies L. rubellus are delimited using a Bayesian multi-locus species delimitation method, as well as single gene haplotype networks and gene trees, and the split within the species-pair L. terrestris-L.

The results provide clues to the future revalidation of some of the nominal species today placed in synonymy with L. hoffmeisteri and suggest that this complex contains also other species than those studied by us.
Cryptic diversity in the well-studied terrestrial worm Cognettia sphagnetorum (Clitellata: Enchytraeidae)
Given that cryptic diversity was found in this genus, it is recommended that material of Cognettia used in future studies should be identified using molecular barcodes.
Hybridisation and species delimitation of Scandinavian Eisenia spp. (Clitellata: Lumbricidae)
It is confirmed that E. fetida and E. andrei are separate species and, in most cases, are separated by both mitochondrial and nuclear markers, and that the two lineages of E. Fetida indeed comprise a single, panmictic species despite the deep mitochondrial divergence.
Towards a molecular phylogeny of the fungus gnat genus Boletina (Diptera: Mycetophilidae)
A molecular phylogeny of the fungus gnat genus Boletina (Diptera: Mycetophilidae) is proposed and described in detail in Martinsson, S, Kjærandsen, J. and Sundberg (2011).
Placing the forgotten: on the positions of Euenchytraeus and Chamaedrilus in an updated enchytraeid phylogeny (Clitellata : Enchytraeidae)
The phylogeny of Enchytraeidae was re-estimated to establish the relationships of the now resurrected Chamaedrilus and Euenchytraeus and to confirm their status as separate taxa, and it is concluded that Chamaingrillus andEuenchYtraeus are closely related, but theirstatus as separate genera is justified.
