Editor's comment This record is an historic relic, due to the way WoRMS evolved as originally solely for marine taxa. Lumbricus auctorum [non Lumbricus Linnaeus, 1758] currently includes a variety of taxa originally described under Lumbricus Linnaeus (which is now in Oligochaeta), and subsequently found to belong elsewhere, mostly in various marine Polychaeta families. However, the original name records of these taxa could be moved now to under the Linnaean Lumbricus, and the 'Lumbricus auctorum' record could be deleted.. See also further species, mainly aquatic Oligochaeta, under Lumbricus Linnaeus, 1758 [editor comment by G. Read, April 2020] [details]
