Ten specimens of Brama dussumieri (family Bramidae) were collected from waters off Jeju Island, Busan, and Gangneung, Korea, during 2013-2014. The specimens were characterized by having 58-64 lateral line scales and 13-15 gill rakers. An analysis of 567 base pair sequences of mitochondrial DNA cytochrome c oxidase subunit I showed that sequences in our ten specimens are concordant with those of B. dussumieri from the USA, India, and Japan, although with slight differences (genetic distance = 0.000-0.018). Brama dussumieri was distinguished from the most similar species, Brama japonica, by the number of lateral line scales (57-65 in B. dussumieri vs. 65-75 in B. japonica) and the number of gill rakers (13-15 in B. dussumieri vs. 17-20 in B. japonica). We propose the new Korean name "Wae-sae-da-rae" for B. dussumieri in Korea.
