Szederjesi T., Pavlíček, T., Csuzdi, Cs. 2013: New earthworms species from Jordan (Oligochaeta, Lumbricidae). Acta zoologica Academiae Scientiarum Hungaricae. 59:391-400
Elaborating a new material from Jordan resulted in describing two species Dendrobaena alexandrii and Dendrobaena transjordanica new to science and a new record for the country. The updated list of earthworms reports 20 species recorded in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. Out of all recorded species 9–12 species (45–60%) are autochtonous and 8–11 species (40–55%) are introduced.
