Abstract

The diagnosis of the genus Perelia EASTON, 1983 is revised and two species, Perelia shamsi sp. n. and Perelia galileana sp. n. are described from Israel. The taxonomic status of Helodrilus (Allolobophora) aharonii STEPHENSON, 1922 is clarified. To accommodate the species Allolobophora handlirschi diplotetratheca PEREL, 1967 removed from Perelia a new genus Rhiphaeodrilus gen. n. is erected. In addition, new data about species richness and distribution of the genera Aporrectodea ÖRLEY, 1885, Allolobophora EISEN, 1874, Helodrilus HOFFMEISTER, 1845, Eisenia MALM, 1877, Eiseniella MICHAELSEN, 1900 and Criodrilus HOFFMEISTER, 1845 in Israel are presented.
