The Enchytraeid fauna of Romania


Within a project aiming to study ecosystem services in Transylvania, qualitative soil samples were collected to explore the enchytraeid fauna in the area. Completed these results with data from Dózsa-Farkas’ earlier Romanian collections between 2005 and 2011, 55 species from 10 genera were found from which 1 genus and 36 species were new to the fauna Romania and 3 Fridericia species were to science. Most frequent species were Enchytraeus buchholzi sensu lato, Enchytronia christenseni, Fridericia nemoralis, Buchholzia appendiculata and F. galba. Reviewing the publications of former Romanian zoologists we summarized the known enchytraeid fauna of Romania.
