Assistant Research Professor Marcos Perez-Losada co-authored the study, "Multigene phylogeny reveals two new isolated and relic earthworm genera (Oligochaeta: Lumbricidae)," which was published in the Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society on July 3rd, 2017. Phylogenetic analysis has revealed many potential new earthworm species and has led to changes in current taxonomic classifications. Here, we propose the addition of two new earthworm genera, Galiciandrilus gen. nov. and Compostelandrilus gen. nov., to the family Lumbricidae.
