Ma Hongwei ; Choi Joong Ki ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 21, issue 1, 2005, Pages 21~30
The morphogenesis of the marine ciliate, Pelagostrobilidium simile Song and Bradbury, 1998, was investigated using pyridine silver carbonate impregnation. The morphogenesis of P. simile is of hypoapokinetal mode. The oral primordium of P. simile commences slightly below the external membranelles (EM) with the proliferation of an anarchic field. Somatic ciliature in proter and opisthe of P. simile are derived from the old structure with the proliferation of the basal bodies during the dividing process. Parental oral apparatus of P. simile is inherited by the proter, and no reorganization of oral apparatus was observed in the parental oral infraciliature.

Lee Ji Min ; Chang Cheon Young ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 21, issue 1, 2005, Pages 31~43
Three harpacticoid species of the genus Onychocamptus are reported from the inland waters of South Korea: O. vitiospinulosa (Shen and Tai), O. mohammed (Blanchard and Richard) and O. bengalensis (Sewell). Of these, O. vitiospinulosa and O. mohammed are newly added to Korean copepod fauna. Onychocamptus vitiospinulosa is redescribed. Systematic accounts on the morphological details and the intraspecific variabilities are provided with a key to the Onychocamptus species from Korea.

Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 21, issue 1, 2005, Pages 45~56
Three species of Gastrostyla ciliates collected from the sewage treatment plant and a puddle in the valley from Korea were identified as Gastrostyla minima Hemberger, 1985, G. steinii Engelmann, 1862 and G. setifera (Engelmann, 1862). The description was based on the observation of living specimens, protargol impregnated specimens and biometric analysis. The morphological variations among the populations of these species were investigated with morphometry. These species have not been reported in Korea and their diagnostic characteristics are as follows: G. minima normally has two oval macronuclei (Ma) with one spherical micronucleus (Mi) respectively, continuous ventral cirral row (VCR) with additional one postoral ventral cirrus (poVC), five transverse cirri (TC), six dorsal kineties (DK) with broken 4th kinety, and cortical granules. G. steinii has four oval Ma with three to five Mi, discontinuous VCR with additional one poVC, four TCs, six DKs, and no cortical granules. G. setifera has two oval Ma with one spherical Mi respectively, five TCs which distinctly separate in two groups, six DKs, discontinuous VCR with additional two poVCs, and no cortical granules.

Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 21, issue 1, 2005, Pages 57~66
Tenuidraconema philippinensis, a new species of free-living marine nematode, collected from the shallow subtidal coarse sediments of the Philippines, is described. The new species differs from T. fiersi Decraemer, 1989 and T. koreensis Rho and Kim, 2004, by the following characteristics: the position of 12 cephalic adhesion tubes in both sexes (all 12 cephalic adhesion tubes inserted on the body annules), the number of posterior sublateral adhesion tubes (12 in male and 11 in female) and posterior subventral adhesion tubes (16 in male and 17 in female), and the absence of the intermingled somatic setae in male. This is the first discovery of the genus Tenuidraconema in the Philippines.
A New Record of Antedonid Crinoids (Comantulida, Macrophreata, Antedonidae) in Korea
Shin Sook ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 21, issue 1, 2005, Pages 67~72
Taxonomic study for some comatulid crinoids collected by a fishing net from about 170 m deep in front of Jukbyeon, East Sea in Korean water was conducted. A macrophreatan species, Boleometra clio (A. H. Clark, 1907) belonging to the subfamily Bathymetrinae and the family Antedonidae, was identified and turned out to be new to the Korean fauna. The family Antedonidae comprised five species in Korea.
Occurrence of Alpheid Shrimp, Alpheus albatrossae (Decapoda: Caridea: Alpheidae) in Korea
Koo Hyeyoung ; Kim Won ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 21, issue 1, 2005, Pages 73~79
Continuous taxonomic study on shrimps collected from Korean waters revealed that an alpheid shrimp, Alpheus albatrossae occurs in Korean waters. This species belongs to the macrocheles group of the genus Alpheus. This species is distinguished from other known species of the genus Alpheus in Korea by having orbital teeth and palm of large chela with three heavy longitudinal ridges and grooves terminating distally in (1) a heavy tooth above dactylar articulation, (2) the adhesive plaque, and (3) a heavy tooth below dactylar articulation. Korean Alpheidae fauna now consists of 21 species of seven genera.
Paradraconema jejuense, a New Species of Genus Paradraconema (Nematoda: Draconematidae) from Korea
Rho Hyun Soo ; Kim Won ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 21, issue 1, 2005, Pages 81~91
A new species of draconematid nematode, Paradraconema jejuense n. sp., is described from the shallow sublittoral coarse sediments of Jeju Island, Korea. Paradraconema jejuense n. sp. is most similar to P. antarcticum Allen and Noffsinger, 1978 in having similar habitus (long slender body) and amphideal fovea (doubled elongate spiral in male and circular spiral in female), but is distinguished by the following characteristics: larger number of posterior sublateral adhesion tubes (10 in male and 11-12 in female) and subventral adhesion tubes (16 in male and 17-18 in female), fewer cephalic acathiform setae on rostrum (a pair of small cephalic acathiform setae in both sexes), the absence of eye-spots, and the presence of a differentiated lateral field in mid-body region. This is the first taxonomic report on Paradraconema species from Korea.

Kim Hyung June ; Sim Chung Ja ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 21, issue 1, 2005, Pages 111~122
A study on marine sponges was conducted by SCUBA diving at Ulleungdo Island and Gageodo Island, Korea during the period from July 2000 to October 2001. Two species, Clathria (Clathria) gombawuiensis n. sp. and Clathria (C) gageoensis n. sp., are new to the fauna of sponges. Clathria (C) gombawuiensis n. sp. closely relates to Clathria (C) conica Levi, 1963 based on the type of spicules, but differs in size of spicules and growth form, Clathria (C) conica has not small toxa. Clathria (C) gageoensis n. sp. is similar to Clathria (C) hexagonopora Levi, 1963, but it differs in size of spicules and growth form, also Clathria (C) hexagonopora has not small toxa
