Variation Pattern of mtDNA among Six Subspecies of Apodemus agrarius(Mammalia, Rodentia) in Korea, China, and Russia
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 15, issue 2, 1999, Pages 153~164
One hundred and eleven samples of six subspecies of striped field mouse, Apodemus agrarius Pallas from Korea, China and Russia, were used for the analysis of mitochondrial DNA(mtDNA) fragment patterns resulted from the digestion with eight restriction enzymes by blot hybridization technique. All 32 fragments, nine mtDNA haplotypes, and four major subgroups with the mean divergence value of 0.896 to 1.150% were revealed. In summary, three forms are recognized: [I, subspecies chejuensis (Chejudo island, Korea)], [II, subspecies pallescens (southwestern Korea), coreae (central Korea), and septentrionalis (Russia)], and [III, subspecies manchuricus (northeastern China) and pallidior (northern China)], although some samples of subspecies coreae are somewhat different from almost all samples of six subspecies, and some samples of subspecies pallidior are similar with all samples of subspecies septentrionalis to form same haplotype. It is confirmed that A. agrarius chejuensis is a distinct subspecies, that subspecies coreae (including pallescens) is also a distinct subspecies, that subspecies manchuricus and pallidior are synonyms of subspecies ningpoensis, and that subspecies septentrionalis is a synonym of subspecies ningpoensis, and that subspecies septentrionalis is a synonym of subspecies agrarius. Moreover, it seems that A. agrarius shows constant karyotype, minimal variation in mtDNA genotype, and considerable divergence in morphometric characters, although further analyses with additional samples of A. agrarius in Eurasia will be necessary to determine the degree of variation of these taxonomic characters and to clarify subspecies classification as well.
Numerical Taxonomic Study on Five Species of Genus Apodemus in East Asia
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 15, issue 2, 1999, Pages 165~174
Specimens of five species of Apodemus(A. agrarius, A. chevrieri, A. draco, A. latronum, and A. peninsulae) from east Asia (Korea and China) were used for numerical taxonomic analyses with 31 external and cranial characters. Two groups and eight subgroups within them were recognized: [I; a large-size form; (A. agrarius chejuensis), (A. chevrieri), (A. draco orestes and A. latronum), and(A. peninsulae peninsulae and A. p. preator)], [II; a small-size form; (A. agrarius coreae), (A. agrarius manchuricus, A. a. ningpoensis, and A. a. pallidior), (A. draco draco), and (A. peninsulae sowerbyi)]. Conclusions based on morphometric analyses are such as followings: 1) Morphometric characters appeared not to be useful in order to distinguish two subgenera in Apodemus (Apodemus and Alsomys), 2) further analysis is necessary to determine whether or not A. draco and A. latronum are conspecific, and 3) A. a. chejuensis is in morphometric characters the largest form among five species of Apodemus studied. Moreover, it is confirmed: 1) A. agrarius, A. chevrieri, and A. peninsulae are distinct species, 2) A. draco and A. latronum are not conspecific with A. peninsulae. 3) Three forms of A. agrarius (large-size form, medium-size form, and small-size form) can be recognized as three subspecies [(A. a. chejuensis), (A. agrarius coreae), and (A, a, ningpoensis including A. a. manchuricus and A. a. pallidior)], 4)A. draco draco and A. draco orestes are distinct subspecies, 5) A. peninsulae peninsulae (including A. p. preator) and A. p. sowerbyi are distinct subspecies.
A Review of the Subfamily Osoriinae (Coleoptera, Staphylinidae) in Korea
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 15, issue 2, 1999, Pages 175~181
A systematic review of the subjamily Osoriinae in Korea is presented. Six species are recognized, two of which are recorded for the first time in Korea [Eleusis coarctata Sharp and Mimogonus microps (Sharp)]. A key is provided for separation of the known species of the Osoriinae, and drawings of genitalia and photographs of habitus are presented.
A Newly Recorded Species of the Genus Nesticella (Aranea, Nesticidae) in Korea
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 15, issue 2, 1999, Pages 183~187
One nesticid spider, Nesticella mogera (Yaginuma, 1972), collected from a paddy field is reported for the first time from Korea. The species is closely allied to Nesticella brevipes (Yaginuma, 1970), but is characterized by its male paracymbium and female epigynal scape.
New Records of Three Marine Hydromedusae (Cnidaria, Hydrozoa) in Korea
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 15, issue 2, 1999, Pages 189~195
Some marine hydromedusae were collected from the coasts of Geojedo Island and Changho harbour in Korea during the period from January 1997 to March 1999. They were identified into Rathkea octopunctata (M. Sars, 1835), Spirocodon saltatrix (Tilesius, 1818) in Anthomedusae and Dipleurosoma typicum Boeck, 1866 in Leptomedusae. They are new to the Korean fauna.
New Records of Four Hydroids (Cnidaria, Hydrozoa) in Korea
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 15, issue 2, 1999, Pages 197~204
Some marine hydroids were collected from the eastern sea of Korea during the period from June 1989 to July 1997. Among the identified species four hydroids: Bimeria annulata (Nutting, 1901), Bougainvilla ramosa (van Beneden, 1844), Eudendrium boreale Yamada, 1954 and Plumularia undulata Yamada, 1950 were turned out to be new to Korean fauna.
A Taxonomic Review of the Licithoceridae (Lepidoptera) in Sri Lanka V. The Subfamily Lecithocerinae : Genera Timyra and Doxogenes
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 15, issue 2, 1999, Pages 205~220
As the 5th series of the study on the family Lecithoceridae in Sri Lanka, 24 species of Timyra Walker including 5 new species, and 8 species of Doxogenes Meyrick including 3 new species, are recognized. Among them 4 species of Timyra Walker and 2 species of Doxogenes Meyrick, which were previously described from Sri Lanka, were not found during the study. Timyra praeceptrix Meyrick is synonimized with T. mendicella Walker, and T. stachyophora Meyrick wth T. orthadia Meyrick. Descrption of the new species, with illustrations of their genitalia are given.
Taxonomic Review of Korean Watersipora (Bryozoa, Gymnolaemata, Cheilostomata)
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 15, issue 2, 1999, Pages 221~229
Watersipora subovoidea (d'Orbigny, 1852) from Korea is synonymous with Watersipora subtorquata (d'Orbigny, 1842), which shows a wide range of variation in the width of zooecium and orifice. Watersipora platypora n. sp. which was previously known as Dakaria bidentata and Watersipora arcuata in Korea is reported to be new species.
