Abstract

A review of the earthworm fauna of the Carpathian Basin recorded a total of 97 earthworm species of which three: Dendrobaena vladeasa, Octodriloides izanus and Octodrilus parvivesiculatus spp. nov. are new to science. A biogeographic analysis of the earthworm fauna revealed an extraordinarily high rate of endemism (40.21%) which is explained by the special Quaternary and tectonic history of the region.
