Annotierter Katalog der Benhamiinae Arten in der Sammlung des Zoologischen Instituts und Museums von Hamburg (Oligochaeta: Acanthodrilidae)
Csuzdi, Cs
Opuscula Zoologica Instituti Zoosystematici et Oecologici Universitatis Budapestinensis , 2006,
Abstract: An annotated catalogue of the Benhamiinae earthworms housed in the Zoological Institute and Zoological Museum of the University of Hamburg is presented. All the entries are arranged by the valid names published (CSUZDI, 1995). An alphabetic list of the original specific epithets with the valid combinations is also tabulated.
Earthworm species, a searchable database
Csuzdi, Cs.
Opuscula Zoologica Instituti Zoosystematici et Oecologici Universitatis Budapestinensis , 2012,
Abstract: The first earthworm species named was Lumbricus terrestris Linnaeus, 1758. Since then, there were some 6000earthworm (Oligochaeta: Megadrili) species names described, from which ca. 3000–3500 are valid. In order to help the orientation in such a huge amount of data a web-based database was created. Each record contains the basic data of the species names described; i.e. family, genus, specific epithet, author, year, reference to the original description and optionally the valid combination of the species name and deposition of type specimens. The database is searchable by every field mentioned and the resulted list can be arranged alphabetically.
New records of earthworms from Guadeloupe with description of a new species (Oligochaeta: Glossoscolecidae, Acanthodrilidae, Megascolecidae and Eudrilidae)
Csuzdi, Cs.,Pavlicek, T.
Opuscula Zoologica Instituti Zoosystematici et Oecologici Universitatis Budapestinensis , 2009,
Abstract: A small earthworm material from Guadeloupe Islands (French West-Indies) was studied. Altogether 14 earth worm species were collected, 12 of which are common tropical peregrine. On the other hand, two seem to be endemic in the islands. One of these native species, Eutrigaster (Graffia) musciphila (James, 1996) is reported for the first time after the original description, the other, Periscolex nevoi sp. nov. is proved to be new to science.
Remarks on the species Dendrobaena jeanneli Pop, 1948 and its proposed synonymy with Octolasion cyaneum (Savigny, 1826) (Oligochaeta: Lumbricidae)
Csuzdi, Cs.,Pop, V.V.
Opuscula Zoologica Instituti Zoosystematici et Oecologici Universitatis Budapestinensis , 2007,
Abstract: The type specimen of the dubious species Dendrobaena jeanneli Pop, 1948 was found in the Zoological Museum, Babes-Bolyai University, Cluj. An investigation of the somewhat softened and fragmented specimen allowed us to recognise its most important taxonomic characters such as the position of the clitellum and tubercles, the setal arrangement, the structure of the calciferous glands and the nephridial bladders. According to these characters this species belongs to the genus Octolasion rley, 1885, and on the position of the clitellum and tubercles it is clearly identical with O. cyaneum (Savigny, 1826).
Taxonomic and biogeographic analysis of the Allolobophora sturanyi species group (Oligochaeta, Lumbricidae)
Csuzdi, Cs.,Pop, V.V.
Opuscula Zoologica Instituti Zoosystematici et Oecologici Universitatis Budapestinensis , 2008,
Abstract: Morphometric and biogeographic analysis of the Allolobophora sturanyi species group – containing A. sturanyi Rosa, 1895, Eophila dacica Pop, 1938 and A. sturanyi dacidoides Bouché, 1973 – proved that these taxa are distinct; consequently the proposed synonymy by Perel (1979) should be rejected. However, these taxa are morphologically close enough to regard them as subspecies of the polytypic Allolobophora sturanyi. The analysis also revealed a fourth, well separated group that represents a new species to science, Allolobophora prosellodacica sp. n.
New records of earthworms (Oligochaeta) from Madagascar
Razafindrakoto, M.,Csuzdi, Cs.,Rakotofiringa, S.,Blanchart, E.
Opuscula Zoologica Instituti Zoosystematici et Oecologici Universitatis Budapestinensis , 2010,
Abstract: New records of earthworms from Madagascar are presented. This is the first taxonomic report on the earthwormfauna of Madagascar since the last paper of Michaelsen (1931). Altogether data on 14 peregrine earthworm species belonging tofive families are summarized. Together with the native taxa, 33 valid earthworm species have so far been recorded fromMadagascar of which 18 (55%) are endemic in the Island and 15 (45%) introduced.

Megascolex (Promegascolex) mekongianus Cognetti, 1922 - its extent, ecology and allocation to Amynthas (Clitellata/Oligochaeta: Megascolecidae)
Blakemore, R.J.,Csuzdi, Cs.,Ito, M.T.,Kaneko, N.
Opuscula Zoologica Instituti Zoosystematici et Oecologici Universitatis Budapestinensis , 2007,
Abstract: Cognetti (1922) miscounted segments of his Megascolex (Promegascolex) mekongianus and, believing the gizzard in 7 was intermediate between Megascolex, with gizzard in 5, and Pheretima, with gizzard after 7/8, he proposed the subgenus Promegascolex. Next, Gates (1934: 260) redescribed the immature, poorly preserved and abnormal type as Pheretima mekongiana. However, Sims & Easton (1972: 223) listed it as species incertae sedis, excluded it from their Pheretima-group of genera and postulated its gizzard was “clearly in segment 5”. The latter authors also mistook the River Mekong, “Annam” type locality as “Vietnam”. Recently collected material from the River Mekong in Laos is herein described that complies with the corrected type description allowing new designation as Amynthas mekongianus comb. nov. Moreover, A. fluvialis (Gates, 1939) from the Mekong in Thailand is found to be a synonym, although Metaphire fluvialoides (Huynh Thi Kim Hoi, 1998) comb. nov. from Central Highlands of Vietnam remains separate. Reallocation of the type species adds Promegascolex as syn. nov. to Amynthas and its generic diagnosis is amended from Sims & Easton (1972: 211) to permit: Clitellum annular, 14-16, rarely beginning on 13, sometimes extending into 17 (e.g. in A. mekongianus). The slender length and annulations of current specimens: measuring up to 2,900 mm with more than 500 segments, are near the maxima recorded for any earthworm; comparisons are given with “giants” in various families from other regions of the World. Brief comments are made on diversity and ecology of the River Mekong locality.
