Dear Dan,

Very likely Enchytraeus albidus but you need to check. I suggest: C. 
Overgaard Nielsen and Bent Christensen (1959). The Enchytraeidae: 
Critical revison and taxonomy of European species. Naturhistorisk Museum, 
Aarhus.  

Good hunting,

Barrie

w the field on the
reproduction stuff, here's what I'm thinking about.  I'm a
meiobenthologist working on exposed sandy beaches in central Chile.
Meiofaunal polychaetes are abundant (some times dominant) members of the
meiobenthos on these beaches, particularly Saccocirrus and Pisione.  I
also commonly encounter members of the Protodrilidae, Nerillidae,
Hesionidae and Syllidae.  One of the questions I'm interested in is
dispersal, given that most meiofaunal organisms complete their entire
life-cycle within the sediment, how do they disperse in the absence of a
pelagic larval stage.  The question of the reproduction of Pisione was
raised on the list a few months ago.  What kind of larvae do the species
I see in the meiobenthos have? I think Nerillidae have benthic larvae,
but I'm sure about the rest.

Regards
Matt
