A recent survey of earthworms carried out in El-Kala National Park (North East Algeria) resulted in collecting two species Hormogaster redii and Octodrilus maghrebinus belonging to Hormogastridae and Lumbricidae families, respectively. This is the first record of these species from the Park in El-Ghorra Mountain near Algerian Tunisian border. Specific variations have not been observed.
