---------------------------------------|  NOMENCLATOR SUBGENERUM  |---------------------------------------
[ page update: 2018-I-14 ]

In this Nomenclator Subgenerum, we present accounts for the subgenera now established within the genera of oligochaetes.  Each account below includes: subgenus name, last name(s) of authority(ies) first describing the subgenus, the year that the original description was published, abbreviated name for journal or other publication in which the original description was published (including the series, volume, issue {as applicable}, and page on which the original description begins), type species designated for the subgenus that includes the last name of the authority(ies) first decribing the type species, the year the type species was described, the genus in which this subgenus was placed at the time of its original description, and the family in which the genus was placed at the time of the original description of this subgenus.

The navigation table, below, provides a quick link to subgenera listed alphabetically on this page.

We encourage users of this website to provide us with additions and corrections to accounts for the subgenera linked from the table, above – especially for the accounts that are incomplete, highlighted in orange.  We ask that all contributors of information for this website follow the simple instructions provided on the For Contributors page.
