Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 20, issue 2, 2004, Pages 87~98
Two pagurid hermit crabs of the genus Pagurus, P. proximus Komai, 2000 and P. simulans Komai, 2000, were collected from the East Sea of Korea are reported. Brief descriptions and illustrations of these two species are provided. Both have been confounded with P. brachiomastus (Thallwitz, 1891) until recently Komai (2000a) reviewed the taxonomic status of this species complex. Kim's (1973) record of P. brachiomastus from Korea was synonymized to P. proximus by Komai (2000a) and the latter in Korean waters is confirmed through this study. P. simulans is recorded for the first time from Korea as well as the East Sea (Sea of Japan).

Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 20, issue 2, 2004, Pages 99~107
Two epistylid ciliates collected from the sewage treatment plant in Ulsan, Korea were identified as Epistylis chrysemydis Bishop and Jahn, 1941 and E. entzii Stiller, 1935. They were examined in vivo using Die microscope. Protargol impregnation used to reveal the infraciliature and cytological details. The improved diagnoses for these species are as followings. E. chrysemydis: peristomial lip has two bulges encircling the oral region and ciliary rows wound about one and half around peristome; one contractile vacuole located ventrally; stalk ramified hollow; membrane lies 1 and 3 are longer than membranelle 2. E. entzii: peristomial lip has one bulge encircling the oral region and ciliary rows wound about 1 and 1/4 to 1 and 1/3 around peristome; one contractile vacuole located dorsally; stalk ramified, not hollow; membrane lies 1 and 2 are longer than membranelle 3. They are new to Korean fauna.

Sim Chung Ja ; Lee Kyung Jin ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 20, issue 2, 2004, Pages 155~159
A new species of the genus Jaspis (Demospongiae: Astrophorida: Ancorinidae), Jaspis coreana n. sp., is described on the specimen collected from Geomundo Island, Korea during September 1995 to March 2002 by SCUBA diving. This new species is characterized by two sponges association which is completely covered with Poecilastra wondoensis except for oscules. This new species is similar to J. wondoensis in its spicules type, but different in their spicules size, form of oscules and sponge colour. J. coreana has a large oxyasters and longer megascleres than J. wondoensis, oscule cluster and golden yellow colour in life.

Kwon Choon Bong ; Shin Mann Kyoon ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 20, issue 2, 2004, Pages 171~178
Two oxytrichid ciliates collected from the two habitats (soil under pine forest near beach and sewage treatment plant) in Korea were identified as Oxytricha balladyna Song and Wilbert, 1989 and O. longa Gelei and Szabados, 1950. These species are reported in this paper for the first time from Korea. The description was based on the observation of living specimens and protargol impregnated specimens. Diagnostic characteristics for each species are as follows. O. balladyna: one micronucleus located between two macronuclei, five transverse cirri, three caudal cirri, five rows of dorsal kinety, no granule in cytoplasm. O. longa: each micronucleus closely located near two macronuclei, three postoral ventral cirri lying in a straight line and positioned far away from transverse cirri, four transverse cirri, two caudal cirri, four rows of dorsal kinety, yellow-green granules scattered on cytoplasm.

Park Jung Hee ; Won Jung Hye ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 20, issue 2, 2004, Pages 179~184
Some hydromedusae were collected from the East Sea (
06'446'E), Yousu and Youngkwang with horizontal plankton net during from Nov. 2001 to Dec. 2002. They were identified into Proboscidactyla flavicirrata in the order Limnomedusae, and Muggiaea bargmannae and Diphyes bojani in the suborder Calycophorae of the order Siphonophora, respectively. P. flavicirrata is similar with P. stellata in the shape and size, but it is distinguished from later species in that P. stellata has six radial canals, 24 short marginal tentacles and dichotomous branching pattern. The suborder Calycophorae is the first recorded in Korea and posseses only develop a nectosome. In Muggiaea bargmannae, anterior nectophore is simillar with Dimophyes arctica in the shape of nectophore, but it is distinguished from the later in that D. arctica has a undivided mouth plate and deeper hydroecium. In Diphyes bojani, anterior nectophore is simillar with Diphyes dispar in the shape of nectophore, but it is distinguished from the later in which D. dispar has a deeper hydroecium and more prominant dorsal tooth. No posterior nectophores of Muggiaea bargmannae and Diphyes bojani have been observed.

Chatterjee Tapas ; Chang Cheon Young ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 20, issue 2, 2004, Pages 191~200
Two species of halacarid mites belonging to genus Copidognathus viz C. jejuensis n. sp. and C. polyporus Bartsch, 1991 are described on the basis of the specimens collected from an algal bed in Jejudo Island, Korea. Copidognathus jejuensis n. sp. is closely related with C. dentatus Viets, C. dentipes Bartsch and C. eblingi Chatterjee. Morphological similarities and dissimilarities among them are discussed. Copidognathus polyporus Bartsch is reported for the first time from Korea and away from its type localitiy. A key to the species of genus Copidognathus from Korea is provided.

Song Jun-Im ; Cha Ha-Rim ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 20, issue 2, 2004, Pages 201~214
Some actiniarians were collected from the coasts of Jejudo and Baekdo Islands in Korean waters from 1971 to 2004. They are identified into three species within three families, which are newly recorded to Korean actiniarian fauna: Halcampella maxima Hertwig, 1888 within the tribe Athenaria, and also Aulactinia coccinea (Verrill, 1866) and Stichodactyla tapetum (Ehrenberg, 1834) within the tribe Thenaria. They are described in detail with figures and tables together with the distribution and size of cnidae. In preserved specimens, mature oocytes of H. maxima were observed in winter. Also oocytes and sperm sacs of S. tapetum were surveyed at separate individuals in summer. The unique feature of A. coccinea is a body wall with simple adhesive verrucae extended from margin to limbus in longitudinal rows. In the genus Stichodactyla, the smallest species, S. tapetum is distinguished from S. haddoni by short bulbous tentacles, less than 1.0 mm long, densely packed on the oral disc and also conical marginal ones, 1.5-2.0 mm long. As a result of this study, the Korean actiniarian fauna consists of four athenarian and 23 thenarian species in suborder Nynantheae
