Redescription of Bodotria ovalis (Cumacea: Bodotriidae) from Korea
Lee, Chang-Mok ; Kim, Young-Hyo ; Lee, Kyung-Sook ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 24, issue 1, 2008, Pages 1~7
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2008.24.1.001
A taxonomic study was carried out on the cumacean specimens collected from shallow coast of the Yellow Sea in Korea. As a result, Bodotria ovalis Gamo, 1965 is redescribed as new to Korean cumacean fauna based on the differences between ours and previous researchers' views on this species. B. ovalis rarely occurs in the coast of the Yellow Sea.

Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 24, issue 1, 2008, Pages 9~16
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2008.24.1.009
Cerapus longicervicum, a new species of ischyrocerid amphipods, was isolated from the vicinal sea of Deokjeokdo-Island, Incheon (South Korea). This species is characterized by a narrower coxal plate width of gnathopod 1 in male, which is 0.39 times as broad as pereonite 1, and antenna 2, which is longer than antenna 1. This paper also provides the partial sequence of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 (CO1) of the new species, which was obtained from a specimen that was preserved in 4% formalin solution.
First Records of Three Crabs (Crustacea: Decapoda) from Korea
Lee, Kyu-Hyun ; Ko, Hyun-Sook ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 24, issue 1, 2008, Pages 17~24
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2008.24.1.017
Three crab species, Macromedaeus orientalis, Eriphia smithi, and Ocypode cordimana, from Jejudo Island are recorded for the first time in Korea. M. orientalis was collected under the rocks by SCUBA diving in 20m and at low tidal mark. However, E. smithi and O. cordimana were collected in crevices of the rock at low tidal mark and in a burrow of sand beach at supra tidal mark, respectively. At present, E. smithi is the only species of the genus represented in Korean waters. Including the new records in this study, the established brachyuran fauna in Korea now comprises 203 species.

The Gold-spotted pond frog, Rana plancyi chosenica, designated as a vulnerable species by IUCN Red list. This species is a typical example facing local population threats and extinction due to human activities in South Korea. A strategic conservation plan for this endangered species is urgently needed. In order to provide information for future conservation planning, accurate information on the genetic diversity and taxonomic status is needed for the establishment of conservation units for this species. In this study, we used a molecular genetic approach using the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene and control region sequences to find the genetic diversity of gold-spotted pond frogs within South Korea. We sequenced the mitochondrial DNA cytochrome b gene and control region of 77 individuals from 11 populations in South Korea, and one from Chongqing, China. A total of 15 cytochrome b gene haplotypes and 34 control region haplotypes were identified from Korean gold-spotted pond frogs. Mean sequence diversity among Korean gold-spotted pond frogs was 0.31% (0.0-0.8%) and 0.51% (0.0-1.0%), respectively. Most Korean populations had at least one unique haplotype for each locus. The Taean, Ansan and Cheongwon populations had no haplotypes shared with other populations. There was a sequence divergence between Korean and Chinese gold-spotted pond frogs (1.3% for cyt b; 2.9% for control region). Analysis of genetic distances and phylogenetic trees based on both cytochrome b and control region sequences indicate that the Korean gold-spotted pond frog are genetically differentiated from those in China.

Kang, Dong-Won ; Sim, Chung-Ja ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 24, issue 1, 2008, Pages 39~42
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2008.24.1.039
Two marine species of family Callyspongiidae, Callyspongia mookriensis n. sp. and Siphonochalina truncata, were collected from Chujado Island and Jejudo Island, Korea during 2005-2007. Callyspongia mookriensis n. sp. is similar to Callyspongia flabelliformis Tanita, 1968 in type of spicule, habitat and growth form but differs in spicule and mesh size. The new species has longer oxea and broader mesh than Callyspongia flabelliformis's. The overall shape and skeleton of Siphonochalina truncata are nearly identical with specimens described by Lindgren (1897).

They were identified into 13 species belonging to 12 genera, nine families, and seven orders in one class. Among them, common species in Korea and California coastal areas are; Cliona celata, Lissodendoryx firma, Halichondria panicea, Hymeniacidon sinapium.

Copepods of the Genus Leptocaris (Harpacticoida: Darcythompsoniidae) from Salt Marshes in South Korea
Lee, Ji-Min ; Chang, Cheon-Young ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 24, issue 1, 2008, Pages 89~98
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2008.24.1.089
Two copepod species of Leptocaris belonging to the family Darcythompsoniidae are recorded from sandy mud sediments of salt marshes in South Korea: L. brevicornis (van Douwe, 1905) and L. trisetosus pacificus n. ssp. The genus Leptocaris is newly known from Korea. Leptocaris trisetosus pacificus differs from the nominate subspecies in exhibiting a sexual dimorphism in setal armature of leg 3, that is, bearing an additional seta on the second endopodal segment of leg 3 in male and an allopatric geographical distribution. This paper deals with the description and systematic accounts of them with detailed illustrations.
