[Annelida] How to ID an enchytraeid

Does anyone in the list has a key and/or good advice to offer to help me
identify a little potworm a colleague found?

I have no experience with enchytraeids at all, although apparently I've
seen enough pictures of them that I can at least recognize them to family
level. I have attached a few pictures (hope they pass through the listserve
filter). I got some fragments of 16S and 18S which support my first guess,
but I would feel better if I can key it out from morphology. It came from
Argentina (I am still investigating where did the soil originate), so a key
to South American enchytraeids would help a lot.
