Abstract

An oxamination of the genera Bythonomus and Stylodrilus (Lumbriculidae Oligochaeta) shows that there is no longer any distinction between the two, and so Bythonomus is merged in Stylodrilus. The genus is defined, a type species erected, and brief descriptions of all the species are given. Material of the British species, Stylodrilus heringianus has been deposited at the British Museum (Natural History).
