I must admit Spanish is not one of my languages, but can LA LOMBRIZ ROJA
CALIFORNIANA be translated as the California red earthworm? The only
reference I have to the California red is Minnich (1977 p.23) where it is
given as a "common name" for Lumbricus rubellus.

These "common names" can be a nuisance. I have recently had an enquiry
about the blue-nose worm Dendrobaena. Does anyone know what species this is?

Good luck with the thesis,
                           Alex Muir.
