The Swedish Malaise Trap Project, with the main goal to collect insects of poorly studied groups, surprisingly also trapped 25 earthworms. They were collected at four different sites in southern Sweden and were morphologically and molecularly identified as belonging to three different species: Allolobophoridella eiseni, Dendrodrilus rubidus (rubidus and tenuis) and Eisenia andrei. Most interesting was the re-discovery of A. eiseni from Skäralid where it was previously reported by Backlund in 1946 but not often reported since. We also noticed a tendency of most worms climbing into the traps in spring and autumn, not in the summer, but more data are required to draw conclusions about this type of migration.
