Samplings were collected in two monthly intervals at four different stations during a year. Oligochaeta individuals were identified on species level and a total of 14 species (Tubifex tubifex (Muller 1774), Limnodrilus hoffmeisteri (Claparede 1862), L. udekemianus (Claparede 1862), Potamothrix hammoniensis (Michaelsen 1901) belonging to subfamily Tubificinae; Chaetogaster diaphanus (Gruithuisen 1828), Stylaria lacustris (Linnaeus 1767), Nais barbata (Muller 1773),
