The Earthworm Fauna from Ulleungdo Island, Korea with One New Species of the Genus Amynthas (Oligochaeta: Megascolecidae)
Hong, Yong ; Kim, Tae-Heung ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 21, issue 2, 2005, Pages 129~136
During the expedition of Uileunsdo Islands, Korea in September 2-4, 2004, a total of seven species were recognized. Of these, one species Amynthas dageletensis sp. nov. is described as new to science. Amynthas degeletensis sp. nov. lacks spermathecal pore, spermathecae, prostates, and male pore. These characteristics are systematically important and unique to the species among Korean members of Amynthas. Description of the new species is provided, including illustrations of ventral view and male pore region.

A taxonomic study on the Eucyclops serrulatus species group has been accomplished as one of the serial researches on the freshwater cyclopoid copepods in Korea. As a result, the 'Eucyclops serrulatus', hitherto known from Korea through many reports and papers, turns out to be a species complex of six sibling species: E. serrulatus (Fischer), E. roseus Ishida, E speratus (Lilljeborg), E. pacificus Ishida, E. ohtakai Ishida, and I tsushimensis Ishida Taxonomic accounts on their detailed interspecific discrepancies and intraspecific variabilities are presented. A key to the Eucyclops serrulatus group from the Far East is also provided.

Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 21, issue 2, 2005, Pages 157~169
Three species of gammaridean amphipods are reported from four cultured abalones in Jeju Island, Korea. These amphipods are Ampithoe uolida Smith, Elasmopus rapax Costa, and Melita rylovae Bulycheva which were found from the abalones Haliotis discus hannai Ino, H. discus Reeve, H. diversicolor aquatilis Reeve, and H. sieboldii Reeve. Elasmopus rapax, a new record to Korean fauna, is described in detail. Other two gammaridean species are briefly described with diagnostic characters. These amphipods and abalones revealed no species-specific relationship and are considered to be simple and accidential associates.

Yang, Hoi-Jeong ; Ko, Hyun-Sook ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 21, issue 2, 2005, Pages 193~199
The first zoea of Liomera bella belonging to the subfamily Liomerinae is described and illustrated for the first time. Its morphological characteristics are compared with those of other known species of the Xanthidae The general morphology of it corresponds well with zoeas of the Xanthidae. Based on the zoeal morphology, the zoea of L. bella shows a greatest affinity with those of Xontho incisus and Pseudomedaeus agassizii by having the exopod of antenna with two setae, the terminal segment of the endopod of the second maxilliped with six setae, and the fork of telson with one stout and one smaller lateral spines.

Park, Jung-Hee ; Won, Jung-Hye ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 21, issue 2, 2005, Pages 201~205
Some siphonophores were collected from the Korea Strait,
and Yeosu with Issacs-Kidd Midwater trawl net in Sep. 2002. They were identified into Diphyes chamissonis is Huxley, 1859 and Abylopsis eschscholtzi(Huxley, 1859) in the suborder Calycophorae of the order Siphonophora, respectively. They are new to the Korean fauna. As a result of this work, six siphonophores of four families have been reported in Korea.

Choi, Jun-Kil ; Choi, Jae-Seok ; Beamish, F.William ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 21, issue 2, 2005, Pages 207~217
The fish described in this paper were sampled from four watersheds in the Eastern, Chao Phraya, Peninsular, and Maeklons regions of central Thailand, between the years 2000-2004. A total of 124 species were captured from 160 stream and river sites, using an electrofishing method. 33 of these species were captured in the Eastern region and 42 in the Peninsular region. In the Chao Phraya and Maeklong areas, the fish species were both more abundant and more varied, and 52 and 91 species, respectively, were collected in these regions. Seven species (Brachydanio albolineatus, Rasbora paviei, System us binotatus, Homaloptera smithi, Monopterus albus, Macrognathus circumcintus, Channa gaucha) were commonly found in all of the watersheds.

Brief discussions of the diagnostic characters of Rhodoneura and the species newly recorded to Korea, R. sugitanii, are provided with illustrations of male and female genitalia of R. sugitanii.
Two New Marine Sponges of Genus Tedania (Demospongiae: Poecilosclerida: Tedaniidae) from Korea
Kim, Hyung-June ; Sim, Chung-Ja ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 21, issue 2, 2005, Pages 233~241
Two new marine sponges of family Tedaniidae, Tedania (Tedon iu) songakensis n. sp. and Tedania (Tedonia) sasuensis n. sp. were collected from Jeju Island and Chuja Island, Korea between 2004 and 2005. T. (T.) songakensis n. sp. is similar to T (T.) purpurescen Bergquist and Fromont, 1988 based on its type of spicules, but is distinguished from growth form and size of small onychaetes. The growth form of this species is massive, and is compared with thin encrusting of Tedania (T.) purpurescen. The onychaetes of the new species is twice as long as that of T. (T.) purpurescen. T. (T.) sasuensis n. sp. is closely related to T. (T.) connectens (Bronsted, 1924) in type of spicules. However, it is different in size of onychaetes and growth form. The large onychaetes of new species is larger than that of T (T.) connectens. The small onychaetes of new species is smaller than that of T. (T.) connectens. The growth form is massive in new species, but thick encrustins in T.(T.) connectens. And T. (T.) songakensis n. sp. is similar to T. (T.) sasuensis n. sp. in growth form. However, the former is widely different from the latter in shape, color and size of all spicules.
Two New Marine Sponges of Genus Mycale(Poecilosclerida: Mycalidae) from Korea
Kang, Dong-Won ; Sim, Chung-Ja ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 21, issue 2, 2005, Pages 243~250
A taxonomic study on the marine sponges was conducted with materials which were collected from Ulleung Island and Chuja Island, Korea by SCUBA diving during the period of July 2000 to May 2005. Among them, two species, Mycale (Aegogropila) jukdoensis n. sp. and Mycale (Mycale) chujaensis n. sp. are new to science. M. (A.) jukdoensis n. sp. seems closely to M. grandis based on the shape of spicules, but our new species has two categories of subtylostyles and also larger sigmas and raphides than those of M. grandis. And anisochelae I of M. (A.) jukdoensis n. sp. is smaller than that of M. grandis. M. (M.) chujaensis n. sp. is similar to M. sulgata in the growth form and size of microscleres. However, the new species has two categories of subtylostyles instead of one type in M. sulgata.

Koo, Hye-Young ; Kim, Won ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 21, issue 2, 2005, Pages 251~257
Alpheus paracrinitus belonging to the diadema group of the genus Alpheus (Decapoda: Caridea: Alpheidae) is reported from Korean waters. This species is distinguished from other Korean congeneric species of the genus Alpheus by the following characteristics: major chela oval in section, lacking marked transverse or longitudinal grooves; movable finger of minor chela balaeniceps; dactylus of third pereopod simple. Korean Alpheidae fauna now consists of 23 species of seven genera.

Moon Hye-Won ; Song Jun-Im ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 21, issue 2, 2005, Pages 259~272
The antipatharians in Korea were known with three species and two genera belonging to family Antipathidae. In the present study, three species, Antipathes densa, A. grandiflora, and A. dubia, have been newly recorded to Korean antipatharian fauna with the samples collected from Jeju-do during the period from 2003 to 2005. The description was mainly based on the habitat, the branching mode of corallums, the size and arrangement of polyps and spines on the axis, and also the types of cnidae. They had three kinds of cnidae: spirocyst, basitrich, and microbasic p-mastigophore. Spirocysts and basitrichs were distributed at tentacles and microbasic p-mastigophores were mainly at septal filaments.
