New earthworm species and records from the Southern Carpathians (Megadrili: Lumbricidae)
Recent collecting trips to different parts of the Southern Carpathians resulted in reporting 26 earthworm species, among them two species new to science: Dendrobaena cinerea sp. n. and Octodrilus banaticus sp. n. Moreover, Allolobophora pannonica (Cognetti, 1906) has been resurrected from synonymy of A. mehadiensis mehadiensis Rosa, 1895 and reinstated as a separate species. With all these, the number of earthworm species and subspecies present in Romania is now 80.
