Abstract Adult individuals of the parthenogenetic earthworm Octolasion tyrtaeum (Savigny 1826) differ considerably in body size. The length of adult specimens reaches 10–14 cm in some habitats, in others just 5–8 cm. In some habitats, individuals of both size classes coexist. Until now, size differences in O. tyrtaeum were ascribed to environmental rather than genetic factors. We used DNA-sequences of the mitochondrial gene for cytochrome oxidase II (COII) to measure genetic distances between O… Expand
