Zusammenfassung: 
1. The toxicity of the fungicide benomyl to terrestrial enchytraeid species was tested under different conditions. 2. Despite a relatively low acute response even to higher concentrations in agar media, sensitive effects were observed for cocoon production and hatching success at the recommended concentration for agricultural application (5.9 ppm in the test medium). 3. These sublethal effects could be reconciled with population tests in larger quantities of soil: lower abundance was due to a very low number of juveniles in the benomyl-treated cultures.
