Additional information Disambiguation of the common English name. "Lugworm" may also be used incorrectly as the general English name representing any locally harvested for sale bristleworm in Korea, China, Japan, etc. Consequently, nereidid baitworms such as Perinereis aibuhitensis (q.v.) imported into California strangely are known there as lugworms. Also Asian trade statistics referring to lugworms are not relevant to arenicolid usage elsewhere. [details]
