DISTRIBUTION OF LUMBRICUS FRIENDI COGNETTI 1904 (OLIGOCHAETA, LUMBRICIDAE) AT THE EUROPEAN SCALE: FIRST FINDINGS IN SERBIA
R. Tsekova, T. Milutinovic, M. Stojanovic
Abstract: Lumbricus friendi is a European species known from the Atlantic region, introduced to the North Africa and Nearctic region. However, the Voivodina Province, in the state of Serbia, is its fi rst record on the southeastern part of Europe and it proved to be a new species to the earthworm fauna of Serbia. Taking into account two new localities in the Voivodina Province, it is evident that the extent of occurrence for this species has increased. Consequently, this paper records an extension of the known distribution of Lumbricus friendi. Such a discovery is of a considerable faunistic interest: it represents the fi rst record for Serbia and the easternmost one reported so far.
