      Others may get the material for free but pay for it to be pre-composted and hauled to their site. Worm growers make money from sales of earthworms and sometimes, but not always, by selling castings. In addition, some operations sell related products, such as shipping boxes, worm bins, harvesters, soil mixes, books, and videos. Sims R. W. and Easton E. G.

    The genus also occurs in subcontinental India, however, the single Australian report of the type species, Argilophilus marmoratus, is erroneous.. One enigmatic species, Argilophilus hyalinus Eisen, , is reported from Guatemala - known only from the description of a single, macerated specimen. Argilophilus and several other native genera form a close-knit group with nearest relatives. The giant gippsland Earthworm, (Megascolides australis), is one of Australia's 1, native earthworm species. These Giant earthworms average at cm long and 2 cm in diameter and can reach 3 m in length. It is difficult to measure length, as the worms will stretch, so scientists use weight to estimate the size. The average weight of a fresh adult worm is about grams.

The Pheretima complex within the Megascolecidae family is a major earthworm group. Recently, the systematic status of the Pheretima complex based on morphology was challenged by molecular studies.

earthworms (Megascolecidae) and the present paper is concerned with their distribution and abundance in relation to soils and vegetation. SITES The sites were located on the eastern slopes of Mt Kosciusko in the Snowy Mountains and covered an altitudinal range from m near Jindabyne to m near the summit.

Depending on the species, an adult earthworm can be from 10 mm ( in) long and 1 mm ( in) wide to 3 m ( ft) long and over 25 mm ( in) wide, but the typical Lumbricus terrestris grows to about mm (14 in) long. Probably the longest worm on confirmed records is Amynthas mekongianus that extends up to 3 m (10 ft) in the mud along the banks of the 4, km (2, mi) Mekong River.
