The taxonomic characters of the 34 known species of the genus Trichodrilus Claparède, 1862 are discussed as a basis for a systematic revision of the genus. Some additions to the species descriptions are made subsequent to examination of type collections. Trichodrilus campoyi Rodriguez, 1988, originally described as a subspecies of T. strandi Hrabě, 1936, is emended to specific rank. Trichodrilus icenorum Beddard, 1920 is regarded as a synonym of T. allobrogum Claparède, 1862. The extension of… Expand

TLDR
4 new species of Lumbriculidae are reported, plus a range extension of the Korean Lamprortus orientalis Rodriguez, 1994, plus an additional species attributed to a new genus, Honshudrilus. Expand
Taxonomy of Aquatic Oligochaetes
This chapter provides the reader and those studying oligochaetes some general background on the basic anatomy, morphology and taxonomy of the group. The first part of the chapter describes theExpand
Eremidrilus n. gen. (Annelida, Clitellata, Lumbriculidae) and new species from California, U.S.A.
A new Nearctic lumbriculid genus, Eremidrilus, includes four new California species (E. elegans, E. coyote, E. ritocsi, and E. felini) plus the new combination of Trichodrilus allegheniensis Cook,Expand
Sylphella puccoon gen. n., sp. n. and two additional new species of aquatic oligochaetes (Lumbriculidae, Clitellata) from poorly-known lotic habitats in North Carolina (USA)
TLDR
Streams and wetlands of Southeastern USA have a remarkably high diversity of endemic lumbriculids, and these poorly-known invertebrates should be considered in conservation efforts. Expand
On Kincaidiana Altman, 1936 and Guestphalinus Michaelsen, 1933 (Annelida, Clitellata, Lumbriculidae), with the descriptions of three new species
Two formerly monotypic lumbriculid genera, Guestphalinus Michaelsen, 1933 and Kincaidiana Altman, 1936, are reviewed using morphological and molecular data, following the discovery of newExpand
Tenagodrilus musculus, a new genus and species of Lumbriculidae (Clitellata) from a temporary pond in Alabama, USA
A new hyporheic lumbriculid clitellate, Tenagodrilus musculus g.n., sp.n. from Huntsville, Alabama, USA is described. The plan of the reproductive system is plesiomorphic, as in Stylodrilus and otherExpand
Oligochaetes in southern European groundwater: new records and an overview
This work deals with an overview of the faunal composition and presents a general ecological approach to the groundwater oligochaetes in southern Europe. The species richness is high and similar toExpand
Groundwater oligochaetes (Annelida, Clitellata) from the Mercantour National Park (France), with the descriptions of one new genus and two new stygobiont species
TLDR
The dominance of enchytraeids among the groundwater oligochaete fauna is here confirmed, and the lumbriculid genus Trichodrilus Claparède, 1862 is also a characteristic faunistic element of the underground freshwater oligoch aete communities. Expand

New records of marine Marionina (Oligochaeta, Enchytraeidae) from the Pacific Northeast, with a description of Marionina klaskisharum sp. nov.
TLDR
Four species of the enchytraeid oligochaete genus Marionina from intertidal habitats are added to the British Columbia species list and M. nevisensis is elevated from a subspecies of M. achaeta Lasserre because of structural differences of their spermathecae and seminal vesicles. Expand
A phylogenetic analysis of the Lumbriculidae (Annelida, Oligochaeta)
Though the Lumbriculidae is a monotypic taxon including Kurenkovia, there is no support from cladistic analyses for the Kurenkovidae. The unusual nature of the vasa deferentia, which run between theExpand
The anatomy of the pharynx of two predatory aquatic oligochaetes
TLDR
The genera Haplotaxis and Phagodrilus have convergent modifications of the pharynx that are adaptations for ingesting prey, especially other oligochaetes, and need be considered to be directly related to the leeches or branchiobdellidans simply because of these modifications. Expand

Did the lumbriculids provide the ancestors of the branchiobdellidans, acanthobdellidans and leeches?
TLDR
Revision of the literature concerning Agriodrilus and Acanthobdella, both supposedly intermediate links in the traditional single line of evolution between lumbriculids, branchiobdellidans, and leeches, supports the alternative hypothesis of an independent origin of most if not all of these groups.

The structure of the male ducts of numerous representatives of the family Lumbriculidae testifies against the assumption of Stephenson (1930) of an archaism of this family and against theExpand

Two atavistic characters of some Lumbriculidae and their importance for the classification of Oligochaeta

Two atavistic characters of some Lumbriculidae and their importance for the classification of Oligochaeta
TLDR
It is shown that the posterior location of funnels and sperm ducts is the result of a forward shift of the atria, which refutes Stephenson's supposition that the Lumbriculidae is the most archaic family of the present-day Oligochaeta. Expand
