Abstract This paper presents an up-to-date list of the terrestrial earthworms of Hainan Island, which is the second largest island of China and separated by Qiongzhou Strait from the Leizhou Peninsula, Guangdong Province. Actually, 45 species are already known in this island, 60% of which is native species. Ten new species which were collected in the fieldwork in 2006 are also included in the list. Of these 45 species, 82% belongs to the family Megascolecidae, with the dominant genus Amynthas… Expand
Molecular Phylogeny of Pheretimoid Earthworms (Haplotaxina: Megascolecidae) Based on Mitochondrial DNA in Hainan Island, China
In the Chinese Hainan Island, Amynthas and Metaphire are two dominated pheretimoid earthworm species belonging to the family Megascolecidae. They differ from earthworms in the adjacent regions inExpand
Bioaccumulation of heavy metals in earthworms from field contaminated soil in a subtropical area of China
Abstract Bioaccumulation factors for heavy metals (Cd, Zn, Cu, and Pb) were examined for selected earthworm species (Metaphire californica, Amynthas homochaetus, Amynthas pecteniferus, and AmynthasExpand
Total mercury and methylmercury concentrations over a gradient of contamination in earthworms living in rice paddy soil.
TLDR
In areas where the source of Hg is deposition, especially in water-logged and acidic rice paddy soil, earthworms may biomagnify MeHg more than was previously reported, and it is emphasized that Rice paddy environments affected by acidifying deposition may be widely dispersed throughout Asia.

Some New Earthworms of the Genus Amynthas (Oligochaeta: Megascolecidae) from Mt. Hohuan of Taiwan
TLDR
The endemic terrestrial earthworm fauna in this cold-temperate mountain region of Taiwan is apparently more closely related to those of tropical southern China and Southeast Asia than to that of cold- Temperate central China. Expand
A NEW SPECIES OF EARTHWORM FROM GUIZHOU PROVINCE (OLIGOCHAETA: MEGASCOLECIDAE)
TLDR
The new species is similar to Pheretima leonoris Chen, 1946, but differs from the latter in having no spermathecae chamber; having longer diverticulum and long-stalk gland connecting with spermae and rather small male copulatory chamber. Expand
ON SOME NEW EARTHWORMS FROM CHINA
In working on the fauna of the Oligoehaeta of China, the writers have found seven new species and one new subspecies of the terrestrial oligochaetes which are distributed in the various places of ourExpand
Endemic plants in limestone region on Hainan Island
Endemic plants occurring in limestone of Hainan Province consist of 63 species in 52 genera and 37 families, of which 18 species are restricted to Hainan only. About 84% of the species are ofExpand
NOTES ON TWO NEW SPECIES OF THE GENUS AMYNTHAS FROM GUIZHOU PROVINCE (HAPLOTAXIDA:MEGASCOLECIDAE)
TLDR
The present paper reports two new species of the genus Amynthas from GuizhouProvince, China, which is similar to Pheretima mammoporophorata Thai 1982, but differs from the latters by only two spermathecal pores in 7/8 and 8/9, the malespores situated on the lateral part of the large roundflat--topped papillae and the diverticulum twisted in wave fashion.

Biodiversity of Earthworms in Taiwan: A Species Checklist with the Confirmation and New Records of the Exotic Lumbricids Eisenia fetida and Eiseniella tetraedra
TLDR
A checklist ofrestrial megadrile earthworms variously reported from Taiwan is provided with the confirmation and new records of the exotic lumbricids Eisenia fetida (Savigny) and Eiseniella tetraedra ( Savigny). Expand
Population genetic structure and phylogeographical pattern of a relict tree fern, Alsophila spinulosa (Cyatheaceae), inferred from cpDNA atpB–rbcL intergenic spacers
TLDR
Both the minimum spanning network and neighbor-joining trees generated for haplotypes demonstrated that current populations of A. spinulosa existing in Hainan, Guangdong, and Guangxi were subdivided into two geographical groups, which implied a population expansion process during evolutionary history.

A NEW SPECIES OF THE GENUS DRAWIDA FROM YUNNAN, CHINA (MONILIGASTRIDA: MONILIGASTRIDAE)
TLDR
The present species is similar to Drawida, decourcyi but differs from the latter in 1). Expand
A NEW SPECIES OF EARTHWORM FROM HAINAN ISLAND
TLDR
The new species is similar to Pheretima multitheca Chen, another species distributed in Hainan Island, in the size of body and in the presence of a special copulatory chamber, but differs in having 2 pairs instead of many pairs of spermathecae and sper-mathecal pores. Expand
TWO NEW SPECIES OF THE GENUS AMYNTHAS FROM GUIZHOU (HAPLOTAXIDA: MEGASCOLECIDAE)
TLDR
The new species is similar to Amynthas palmasus (Chen, 1946), but differs from the latter in the follow characters: (1) male pore on a small papilla and other three papilla close to it; (2) caeca compound, but not in palmate; (3) diverticullum longer than main part, terminal half part is weak or closed zigzag fashion.
