Parachordodes megareolatus, a New Species of Horsehair Worm(Nematomorpha: Gordioida: Gordea) from Korea
Andreas Schmidt-Rhaesa ; Pyung-Rim Chung ; Woon-Mok Sohn ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 19, issue 2, 2003, Pages 161~166
One new species of horsehair worms (Nematomorpha) from Korea, Poruchordodes megareolatus, is described. The specimen is reported from the human urinary system. The significance of this and other reports from the urinary system is discussed. The characteristics of the new species are clusters of a small type of cuticular structures, the areoles, which are associated with a second type of areoles, the large megareoles. Another character unique for the genus Parachordodes is the fusion of rows of cuticular bristles on the ventral side anterior of the cloacal opening.

Nam Woo Kim ; Eun Young Joo ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 19, issue 2, 2003, Pages 167~176
This study sought to observe systematic relationships through taximetrical analyses by morphological characters among the 10 species, on three species in the virilis section (D. virilis, D. tsigana and D. lacertosa) and seven species in the quinaria section (D. angularis, D. brachvnephros, D. curvispina, D. kuntzei, D. nigromaculata, D. takadai and D. unispina) of the subgenus Drosophila. In the cluster and the cladistic analysis among the members of subgenus Drosophila, 10 species was divided into the 1st group of D. virilis, D. tsigana, and D. lacertosa and the 2nd group of D. angularis, D. brachynephros, D. curvispina, D. kuntzei, D. nigromaculata, D. takadai, and D. unispina. In cluster analysis, the 2nd group had three sister groups; one sister group that clustered D. angularis and D. brachynephros then D. unispina was clustered to them, another sister group clustered D, curvispina and D. takadai then D. kuntzei was clustered to them and the other sister group of D. nigromaculata. In the 10 species, D. virilis and D. lacertosa were the first to be divided and then D. tsigana. Although 1st group which D. virilis was belonged can be determined as more primitive than the 2nd group, it seemed that this group was not the direct ancestor of the 2nd group, rather there should be another ancestor. Among the quinaria species group, D. nigromaculata was the first to be divided and D. kuntzei was the most recent species to be divided.

Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 19, issue 2, 2003, Pages 177~188
Two new species of the genus Orecturus are described os associates of octocorals in Cheju Island, Korea. Orecturus longicaudatus n. sp. associated with a gorgonacean coral differs from its congeners by having a large body and a long anal somite. Orecturus similis n. sp., associated with an alcyonacean coral, is similar to O. excavatus but can be distinguished from it by possessing a single seta on the second segment of maxilla, the terminal claw of maxilliped which is evenly tapering, and the different ornamentation in legs 1 and 4.

Phylogeny of Subgenus Drosophila (Drosophilidae: Drosophila) in Korea by Allozyme and Soluble Protein Analysis
Eun Young Joo ; Nam Woo Kim ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 19, issue 2, 2003, Pages 217~225
This study was conducted to ascertain interspecific relationships by analyzing allozyme and soluble proteins of ten species in the Drosophila (Drosophila) to form a part of systematic studies of Korean drosophilids. The results of allozyme and TDE analysis showed that D. (D.) curvispina and D (D.) tsigana had the furthest genetic distance. On the other hand, the genetic distance between D (D.) angularis and D (D.) brachynephros was extremely close. And, ten species of the subgenus Drosophila can be divided into the first group of D. (D.) virilis, D. (D.) tsigana and D. (D.) lacertosa , and the second group consisted of four subgroups; the first subgroup clustered D. (D.) angularis and D (D.) brachynephros, the second subgroup clustered D. (D.) unispina and D. (D.) curvispina, the third subgroup of D (D.) takadai and D. (D.) kuntzei and the fourth subgroup of D. (D.) nigromaculata alone.

Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 19, issue 2, 2003, Pages 227~235
The euplotid hypotrich collected from a puddle, Jeju-do in 2002 and cultured in the laboratory was identified as Euplotes muscorum Dragesco, 1970. The species is reported for the first time from Korea. The description was based on the observation of living specimens, protargol impregnation and biometrical analysis. This species is characterized by following diagnosis: 63-78
in length, 40-52
in width in vivo, 9 frontoventral cirri, 5 transverse cirri,4 caudal cirri, 1 micro- and macronucleus, adoral zone of membranelles with 32-36 adoral membranelles covering approximately 2/3 of body length, 8 dorsal kineties, mid-dorsal kinety with 20-24 cilia 3nd dargyrome complex type. This species with 9 frontoventral cirrotype is very similar to E. muscicola Kahl, 1932. The differences between these two species are: E. muscorum has 8 dorsal kineties and complex dargyrome type, while E. muscicola 9 dorsal kineties and multiple dargyrome type.

Jun-Im Song ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 19, issue 2, 2003, Pages 283~296
Actiniarians were collected from the sandy mud flat of Deokjeokdo, Jak-yakdo, Yeoungjongdo and Hupo of Korean waters from 1962 to 1998. They are identified into three species of two families, which are newly recorded to Korean athenarian fauna: Synandwakiu multitentaculata n. sp., Edwardsioides japonica (Carlgren, 1931) and Metedwardsia akkeshi (Uchida, 1932). They are described in detail with figures and tables. Synandwakia multitentaculata n. sp. is easily distinguished from S. hozawai by having up to 200 in the number of tentacles and by the peculiar macrobasic amastigophores of tentacles and the larger microbasic p-mastigophores of acontia in the macrocnidae.
Molecular Phylogeny of the Family Strigidae (Aves) Based on Mitochondrial Cytochrome b Gene
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 19, issue 2, 2003, Pages 297~304
Phylogenetic analysis of 31 species representing 12 genera in the family Strigidae (Aves: Strigiformes) including 5 species (Bubo bubo, Otus sunia, O. semitorques, Ninox scutulato, Strix aluco) collected from Korea has been undertaken using nucleotide sequences of the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene. Maximum likelihood analysis was performed and pairwise genetic distances were calculated with Kimura's two-parameter and p-distance. Among well-aligned 959 bp used for this study, 459 sites were variable and 398 sites were informative for the phylogenetic analysis. The family Strigidae was divided into three subgroups, Clade I (Aegolius), Clade II (Athene, Micrathene, Glaucidium and Surnia) and Clade III (Bubo, Nycteo, Pulsatrix, Strix, Otus, Ptilopsis, and Ninox). Also, two separated subgroups in the genus Otus were confirmed by the geographical distribution.
