This dataset consists of a sampling campaign of earthworms in arable fields and field margins in the Southwest of the Netherlands. Samples were taken in September and October 2012 with a combination of two methods: handsorting a soil monolith of 20x20x20 cm, and formaldehyde solution (500 ml of 0.2% solution) pored after removing the material to be hand-sorted.
