Three New Species of Kelleria (Copepoda: Poecilostomatoida: Kelleriidae) from Korea
Kim, Il-Hoi ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 22, issue 1, 2006, Pages 1~11
Three new species of Kelleria are described based on the females from the invertebrate burrows in the Port Seogwipo, Jeju Island, Korea. These species possess in common no process on the inner margin of the free segment of leg 5. Kelleria grandisetiger n. sp. possesses a large seta on lateral sides of the genital double-somite and a small thumb-like process near base of the free segment of leg 5. Kelleria undecidentata n. sp. possesses the elongated free segment of leg 5 which is more than four times as long as wide and 11 teeth on the distal margin of the second maxillary segment. Kelleria portiviva n. sp. possesses one seta and one distinct spine on the distal margin of the free segment of leg 5, ten or 11 teeth on the distal margin of the second maxillary segment, and a tuft of spinules on the convex outer comer of mandible.

Seo, Ji-Eun ; Gong, Hong-Hak ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 22, issue 1, 2006, Pages 13~16
Three cheilostomatous bryozoans from Korean waters were identified. Thalamoporella sibogae Soule, Soule and Chaney, 1992 and Schizomavella acuta Osburn, 1952 are new to Korea, and Buffonellaria acutirostris is new to the bryozoans fauna. S. acuta and B. acutirostris n. sp. are described with figures.
Grooming Behavior and a Possible Morphological Structure for Secretions from Abdominal Glands of a Korean Wood-eating Cockroach, Cryptocercus kyebangensis (Insecta: Blattodea)
Park, Yung-Chul ; Kim, Joo-Pil ; Choe, Jae-Chun ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 22, issue 1, 2006, Pages 17~22
Cryptocercus nymphs periodically groom ventral surface of their parents. The grooming might be licking-behavior to obtain secretions from the ventral surface of their parents, and some essential nutrients or hormones that facilitate nymphal development might be included in the secretions. We tried to find morphological structures for secretion outlets on the ventral surface. The deep depressions around setae were present, and their shape was an external morphological structure that liquid secretions from internal glands are likely to be well seized. There were also small holes on the depressions that might be external openings for secretions from the sternal glands. Another possible region on body surface for outlets of secretions might be the apophyses. In Cryptocercus individuals, mucous liquid on body surface was relatively highly present around coxa. The intercoxal apodemes, to which muscles are attached and which open externally between the mid and hindcoxae, might have evolved a secondary function of producing nourishment for the young.
Morphological Variations of Male Genitalia in Northeast Asian Wood-eating Cockroaches, Cryptocercus spp. (Insecta: Blattodea)
Park, Yung-Chul ; Kim, Joo-Pil ; Choe, Jae-Chun ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 22, issue 1, 2006, Pages 23~27
Subsocial woodroaches of Cryptocercus occur in high mountainous forests in temperate regions and they live in a family in complicated galleries of rotten logs. A prominent feature of the geographical distribution of Cryptocercus is the wide disjunction between the eastern and western species in North America, and between West China and Northeast Asia. Recently, five species of the genus were added from Asian areas and two of them are distributed in Northeast Asian areas. We examined morpho-anatomical structures of male genitalia in Manchurian and Korean Cryptocercus, focusing on male genital hooks and subgenital plates.

Two species of the family Dexaminidae, Paradexamine fraudatrix Tzvetkova, 1976 and Paradexamine gigas Hirayama, 1984 are newly recorded from the Korean fauna. They are redescribed and figured in detail. The genus Paradexamine is reported from Korea for the first time.
Two New Records of Caridean Shrimps (Crustacea: Decapoda) from the Korean Continental Slope of the East Sea
Kim, Jung-Nyun ; Choi, Jung-Hwa ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 22, issue 1, 2006, Pages 51~55
Two caridean shrimps, Eualus biunguis (Rathbun, 1902) and Argis toyamaensis (Yokoya, 1933), collected from the Korean continental slope of the East Sea at depths of 850-870 m are reported as new to the Korean caridean fauna with brief descriptions and illustrations. A hippolytid shrimp, E. biunguis, is distinguished from the congeners by the minute che1alike appearance of dactyli of the last three pereopods and the large pyriform eye. A crangonid shrimp, A. toyamaensis, differs from the Korean species of the genus in having the posterior acute spines of submedian carinae on the sixth abdominal somite.

Park, Jung-Hee ; Chang, Soo-Jung ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 22, issue 1, 2006, Pages 57~62
Some scyphomedusae were collected from the coasts of Ilgwang, Jeju Harbour, Yeosu, Yokjido Is. and Munyeodo Is. in Korea from May to Nov. 2004. They were indentified into Pelagia noctiluca Forskal, 1775 and Cyanea nozakii Kishinouye, 1891 of the order Semaeostomeae and Nemopilema nomurai Kishinouye, 1922 of the order Rhizostomeae in the class Scyphozoa. They are new to the Korean fauna.
Copepoda (Poecilostomatoida: Anchimolgidae) Associated with the Scleractinian Coral Gardineroseris planulata (Dana) from the Moluccas
Kim, Il-Hoi ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 22, issue 1, 2006, Pages 63~78
Three new species of poecilostomatoid copepods are described as associates of the scleractinian coral Gardineroseris planulata (Dana) from the Moluccas: Sociellus geminus n. sp., Odontomolgus mucosus n. sp. and O. unioviger n. sp. The genus Sociellus is transferred from the Rhynchomolgidae to the Anchimolgidae. The previously described four species of the genus Paramolgus (P. angustus, P. eparmatoides, P. gibberulus, and P. setellus) of the Rhynchomolgidae, associated with Gardineroseris planulata, are transferred as well to the genus Anchimolgus in the Anchimolgidae.

Lee, Jin-Hee ; Ryu, Shi-Hyun ; Park, Hee-Cheon ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 22, issue 1, 2006, Pages 87~89
The mitochondrial cytochrome b gene of the Korean subspecies (Falco tinnunculus interstinctus) of the common kestrel has been analyzed. According to the molecular phylogeny of six subspecies of common kestrel, six subspecies of the common kestrel were divided into two clades: the first clade is composed of the South African subspecies (F. t. rupicolus) and the second clade includes 5 subspecies (F. t. tinnunculus, F. t. rufescens, F. t. interstinctus, F. t. canariensis and F. t. dacotiae) of the common kestrel. Korean subspecies, F. t. interstinctus was closely related to F. t. rufescens and original subspecies F. t. tinnunculus.
