Seven species of the Korean Lumbricidae, including a newly recorded species, Aporrectodea tuberculata, are reviewed, with illustrations, descriptions and key of the known species in Korea. Other 3 species of the previously known species of the family were not found in this study.

A new limnephilid caddisfly, Nothopsyche bilobata n. sp., is described. The female adult of Apatania martima Ivanov and Levanidova and the larva of Ecclisomyia kamtshatica (Martynov) is newly recorded from Korea. Three undetermined species, Nemotaulius sp.

New Records of Two Phanerozonian Asteroids (Echinodermata, Stelleroidea) in Korea
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 16, issue 1, 2000, Pages 23~30
Some asteroids were collected at a depth of 30 m in Chejudo Island. Of which two species were identified as Luidia maculata Muller et Troschel, 1842 and Linckia laevigata Linne, 1758. These species are turned out to be new to the Korean fauna and redescribed on the morphological characteristics with illustrations. Eighteen species of asteroids are reported to be distributed in the Chejudo Island of Korea.

Ascidians of Tangsa and its Adjacent Waters in Korea Strait

The ascidians specimens were collected from Tangsa and its adjacent waters in Korea by scuba divers during the period from 1994 to 1999. They were identified into 30 species which are reported for the first time in Tangsa. Out of them one species, Molgula hozawai, was turned out to be new to the Korean fauna, and six species, such as Eudistoma illotum, Symplegma connectans, Boltenia trasversaria, Microcosmus nultitentaculatus, Pyura squamata and Molgula hozawai, were newly recorded in Chundo Island and Geojedo Island, which are influenced by warm waters of the Kuroshio Current.
Hydroids (Cnidaria, Hydrozoa) of Dokdo Islands, Korea
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 16, issue 1, 2000, Pages 55~63
As a part of ecological survey of Dokdo Islands, Korea the hydroid collections were made in its intertidal and subtidal zones by the one of present authors and others during the periods from March 1993 to May 1999. The specimens were identified into 15 species of 11 families (Corymorphidae, Corynidae, Eudendriidae, Solanderiidae, Boungainvilliidae Tubulariidae, Lafoeidae, Haleciidae, Campanulariidae, Sertulariidae and Pulmulariidae) in two orders (Athecatae and Thecatae). Two species of them, Fukaurahydra anthoformis (Corymorphidae) and Rhizorhagium sagamiense (Bougainvilliidae) were turned out to be new to the Korean fauna.
A Taxonomic Study of the Tribe Pinophilini (Coleoptera, Staphylinidae) in Korea
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 16, issue 1, 2000, Pages 65~68
A taxonomic study of the tribe Pinophilini is presentd. Three species are recognized, two of which are recorded for the first time in Korea (Pinophilus lewisius Sharp and P. rufipennis Sharp). The genus Pinophilus Gravenhorst is new to Korea.
Three New Species of the Genus Oedostethus (Coleoptera, Elateridae, Negastriinae) in Korea
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 16, issue 1, 2000, Pages 69~77
Three new species belonging to the subfamily Negastriinae, Oedostethus koreanus sp. nov., O. ovalatus sp. nov. and O. canicapillus sp. nov. are described. The genus Oedostethus is new to Korea.
First Record of Two Scyphomedusae (Cnidaria, Scyphozoa) in Korea
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 16, issue 1, 2000, Pages 79~85
Some scyphomedusae were collected from the coasts of Busan (Gijang), Geojedo Island(Jangmok-ri) and Samcheok during the period from June 1989 to May 1999. They were identified into Stenoscyphus inabai of Stauromedusae and Aurelia aurita in Semaeostomeae. They are first recorded in Korea.
Freshwater Chaetonotid Gastrotrichs in Korea
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 16, issue 1, 2000, Pages 87~104
Ten gastrotrich species belonging to family Chaetonotidae are recorded on the basis of the material from various freshwater bodies at 65 localities in South Korea: Polymerurus rhomboides (Stokes), P. nodicaudus (Voigt), Lepidodermella squamata (Dujardin), Chaetonotus (Zonochaeta) succinctus Voigt, C. (Z.) bisacer Greuter, C.(Euchaetonotus) polyspinosus Greuter, C.(E.) heterospinosus Balsamo, C.(E.) heideri Brehm, C.(E.) zelinkai Grunspan, and C.(Hystricochaetonotus) persetosus Zelinka. All the species are illustrated and briefly commented on their affinities and habitats, with a key to the ten species of Chaetonotidae from Korea. This is the first record on the freshwater gastrotrichs from Korea.
Taxonomic Study of Parholaspid Mites (Acari, Mesostigmata) in Korea
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 16, issue 1, 2000, Pages 105~112
Mesostigmatid mites were collected from forest soils in Korea from December 1998 to October 1999. Eleven species were recognized including a new species, Neparholaspis bisunensis n. sp., and three new records, Holaspina communis (Ishikawa, 1966), Holaspina multidentatus (Ishikawa, 1980) and Holaspulus montanus Ishikawa, 1995.
Taxonomic Review of the Genus Diaphanosoma (Branchiopoda, Ctenopoda, Sididae), with a Redescription of Diaphanosoma dubium in Korea
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 16, issue 1, 2000, Pages 113~122
Diaphanosoma dubium Manuilova, frequently confused with the species group of D. brachyurum Lieven and misidentified as an invalid species of D. leuchtenber-gianum Fischer in the Far East, was redescribed and illustrated. Redescription was based on the materials collected from various freshwater habitats at 76 localities in South Korea during the period from May 1978 to June 1999. Previous records of Diaphanosoma species from Korea were examined. D. dubium is well distinguished from other related species by having large head, longer swimming antennae with a thin seta on the outer distal side of basipod, carapace lacking dorsal spine at the posterior carapace margin, and fewer denticles on the ventro-posterior carapace margin.
Himasthla kusasigi(Tremtoda, Echinostomatidae) recovered from the Intestine of the Dunlin, Calidris alpina sakhalina, in Korea
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 16, issue 1, 2000, Pages 125~131
This paper deals with the morphology and taxonomy of the first reported species of echinostome belonging to the genus Himasthla Dietz, 1909, found from dunlins (Calidris alpina sakhalina) in Korea. Birds were captured with mist-nets at the tidal flat of Yeochari, Kanghwa-gun, Kyunggi-do, Korea. The worms were removed from avian intestines in physiological saline, fixed, acetocarmine stained and observed. Himasthla kusasigi Yamaguti, which was found in 1939, was characterized morphologically by a long and slender body (5.27 mm in length), besetting with spines and reniform head collar (0.27 mm) in a form of a single and uninterrupted row of 31 spines. The oral sucker (0.057
0.0684 mm) is smaller than the ventral sucker (0.35
0.29 mm). The ventral sucker was close to the anterior extremity of the body. The worm had two elliptical testes (anterior 0.47
0.30 mm, posterior 0.59
0.27 mm). The testes were close to the posterior end of the body. The uterus was very long, winding and extending through at least two thirds of the body length. The ovary (0.13
0.14mm) was round and small. Below the ovary, a round and small seminal receptacle was found.
