Lake Pedder earthworm
|Lake Pedder earthworm|
Atlantodrilus pedderensis (nomen nudum)
The Lake Pedder earthworm mainly fed on microbes or algae on sand particles. Their feeding habits were seen to have a considerable impact on the banks of the lake, this is because the particles they consumed were deposited on the surface of the ground in the form of castings. As these castings were exposed to air, the soil was aerated, improving both the drainage and water holding capacity of the soil.
