Abstract The endemic earthworm Drawida ghilarovi Gates 1969, which is found in the Primorye and the south of the Khabarovsk Krai, is represented in the forest by a live form of aneciques (burrowing) and in the wetland by soil-litter (epigeic) worms. These moniligastrida species noticeably differ both in pigmentation (grey and black forms, respectively) and in ecology specifics. Molecular analysis of these specimens has been performed using partial sequences of the mitochondrial COI and 16S… Expand

Cryptic genetic lineages in Eisenia nordenskioldi pallida (Oligochaeta, Lumbricidae)
A high number of cryptic lineages uncovered in the two subspecies call for a close examination of their status as potential species, possibly with the help of additional markers, and for additional molecular genetic investigation of either type specimen of these subspecies or of the topotypical populations.

Neotypification of Drawida hattamimizu Hatai, 1930 (Annelida, Oligochaeta, Megadrili, Moniligastridae) as a model linking mtDNA (COI) sequences to an earthworm type, with a response to the ‘Can of Worms’ theory of cryptic species
Questions are raised concerning the molecular identities and provisional divergences of cosmopolitan generotypes Allolobophora chlorotICA chlorotica (Savigny, 1826), the Aporrectodea caliginosa (Savignedy,1826) species-complex sensu Blakemore (2002), and of ecotoxicological standard test-species icon Eisenia fetida fetida ( Savigny), and Resurrection of their respective synonyms is mooted.
