Tubular Structures on the Guticle of Two Gordius Species (Nematomprpha, Gordopodea, Gprdoodae_ from Korea and New Zealand
Andreas Schmidt-Rhaesa ; Alexandder Kieneke ; Daniel Muschiol ; Chung, Pyung-Rim ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 17, issue 2, 2001, Pages 165~169
We describe tubular structures on the cuticle of two representatives of the genus Gordius by scanning electron microscopy. One female from Korea could not be identified further while a male from New Zealand belonged to Gordius paranensis. Other male specimens of G. paranensis did not show tubular structures or the corresponding pores on the cuticle. Therefore it is assumed that tubular structures are not species-specific structures, but also no artifacts or contaminations. They might be glandular products, but this has to be verified by further documentations and investigation of the inner structure of it.
Life History of Obelia bicuspidata Clarke, 1875(Hydrozoa, Campanulariidae)in Korea
Lee, Woo-Jin ; Park, Jung-Hee ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 17, issue 2, 2001, Pages 171~177
The life history of Obelia bicuspidata Clarke, 1975 (Hydrozoa, Campanulariidae) was studied in its habitats, Jak-yk Island, Korea and in the laboratory It grows mainly attaching to the under sides of small rocks immersed in muddy shores, or the shade surfaces of oyster shells. The hydoids liberate medusae. The medusa buds develope twice per year, during from March to June and from September to October The optimum water temperature for the hydroids is between 4
and at the temperature above 9
the hydroids begin to degenerate. In August the surface water temperature is around
and the hydrothecae are all disappeared. The hydroids grow best during from February to May. The medusae are small, 0.3 mm high, 0.45 mm wide and require about 9 days at room temperature (about 2
) for mature after releasing. Obelia bicuspidata turned out to be boreal species in this work.
Glyphina betulae(Hemiptera, Aphididase, Thelaxine)New to the Far Eastern Asia from Mt. Baekdusan, North Korea

Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 17, issue 2, 2001, Pages 179~184
An aphid species, Glyphina betulae( Linnaeus, 1758), which has been known only in western Paleoarctic, is recognized from Mt. Baekdu-san, North Korea. Besides the descriptions and illustration for apterous viviparous female and alate viviparous female, brief biology, host plahts and distribution are discussed. This is the first record of the genus Glyphina in Korean Peninsula.

Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 17, issue 2, 2001, Pages 191~205
This study includes the taxonomy, description, and a key to species of mites in the Family Zerconidae(Acari, Mesostigmata) from the Korean Peninsula. Materials examined and information gathered were based on 1,020 specimens which has been collected nation-wide from April, 1994 to May, 2000. As a result of this study, the following 8 species were identified : Exhinozercon orientalis Blazak, 1975, Eurozercon pacificus Halaskova, 1979, Kaikiozercon mamillosus Halaksova, 1979, Kaikiozercon peregrinus Halaskova, 1979, Koreozercon bacatus Halaskova, 1979, Mesozercon coeranus Blaszak, 1975, Mesozercon plumatus (Aoki, 1966), Zercon szeptyckii Blaszak, 1976. Predominant species was Zercon szeptyckii which has been collected more then 600 specimens at 25 localities in the Korea Peninsula. Seven species except Mesozercon plumatus(Aoki, 1966) had been recorded from North Korea but newly recorded from the southern part of Korean Penunsula.
First Record of Campyloderes macquariae Johnston(Kinorhyncha, Cyclorhagida, Centroderidae) from the North Pacific
Young Hee song ; Chang, Cheon-Young ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 17, issue 2, 2001, Pages 207~216
Campyloderes macquariae Johnston, 1983 is reported from South Korea. Specimens were obtained from the washings of subtidal sediments, holdfasts of macroalgae, and various invertebrates. This is the first record for genus Campy-loderes from the North Pacific. Affinities with its congeners and the variability within species are discussed, with the confirmation of several morphological details by scanning electron microscopy.
A Taxonomic Review of Agyrtidae(Insecta, Coleoptera) in Korea
Cho, Young-Bok ; Park, Sun-Jae ; Ahn, Kee-Jeong ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 17, issue 2, 2001, Pages 217~222
A taxonomic review of the Korean Agyrtidae is presented. Two species are recognized, one a which is reported for the first time in Korea(Pteroloma Koebelei Von Dyke). The diagnoses, illustrations of male genitalia, habitus photos, and a key to the species of Korean Agyrtidae are presented.
A New Species of the Genus Cauloramphus(Bryozoa, Cheilostomata) from Korea
Seo, Ji-Eun ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 17, issue 2, 2001, Pages 223~228
A new species of anascan Bryozoa, Cauloramphus Korensis, is described from two localities of the Yellow Sea, Korea. The new species is similar to C. spiniferum in the characteristics of cryptocyst, the location of distal spines, distal crescentic cap and more or less perpendicular proximal spines, but can easily be distinguished by the presence of brown spines, rare distal spines and hooked rostrum. The genus Cauloramphus is newly reported from Korea.
Redescriptions of Two Thalestrid Copepods, Phyllothalestris sarsi Sewell, 1940 and Dactylopusia falcifera Willey, 1935(Copepoda, Harpacticoida, Thalestridae)in Korea
Song, Sung-Joon ; Kim, Won ; Chang, Cheon-Young ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 17, issue 2, 2001, Pages 229~243
Two marine harpacticoid species, Phyllothalestris sarsi Sewell, 1940 and Dactylopusia falcifera Willey, 1935 belonging to family Thalestridae are redescribed from South Korea, on the basis of the specimens of both sexes mainly from the washings of macroalgae at littoral rocky shore or sublittoral bottom sediments during the period from 1994 to 2000. They are new to Korean fauna, and this report is the first record for them in the Pacific Ocean.
Two New Speies of the Genus Psammocinia(Dictyoceratida, Irchiniidae) from korea
Sim, Chung-Ja ; Lee, Kyung-Jin ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 17, issue 2, 2001, Pages 245~250
Two new species of the genus Psammocinia (Dictyoceratida, Irciniidae), P. bergquisti n. sp. and P. gageoensis n. sp., are described from Gageodo Island (Sohuksando Island), Korea. P. bergquisti n. sp. is characterized by the thumb like appearance and secondary fibre which makes a broad plate or secondary web while other known species in Psammocinia has many narrow and simple secondary fibres. P. gageoensis n. sp. is very similar to P. mosulpia Sim 1998 in shape, but primary fibre of the new species has more complex fascicles and it is difficult to see the detritus in the fibre. The primary fibre of this new species is cored with the smaller sand than that of P. mosulpia.

Shin, Sook ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 17, issue 2, 2001, Pages 251~262
The crinoids collected at the subtidal zone in Geomundo Island were identified. Four species belonging to the family Comasteridae, order Comantulida turned out to be new to the Korean fauna. They are Comantheria intermedia, Comanthus japonicus, C. solaster and C. parvicirrus which are redescribed on the morphological characteristic with illustrations. The class Crinoidea is new to Korean fauna.
New Animal Phylogeny
Kim, Chang-Bae ; Kim, Won ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 17, issue 2, 2001, Pages 263~275
Animal phyla in the traditional animal phylogeny were organized into an order of increasing body plan complexity, which was based on the similarities in early embryonic stages. Molecular phylogeny mainly by 18S rRNA data provides recently re-evaluation of the traditional evolutionary scenario. The current molecular-based view of animal relationships strongly suggest the burst of two groups regraded as intermediate grades of body complexity in the traditional concept and displacement of them into higher positions in the tree. The new animal tree provides a framework within new picture of bilaterian ancestor could be drawn, and comparative developmental and genomic data to be interpreted.
