Two Species of Chalinidae (Demospongiae: Haplosclerida) from Korea
Jeon, Yong-Jin ; Sim, Chung-Ja ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 24, issue 2, 2008, Pages 147~150
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2008.24.2.147
Two species of the family Chalinidae, Haliclona (Gellius) tubulensis n. sp. and Haliclona (Gellius) marismedi were collected from Hongdo Island and Gageodo Island, Korea during 2004-2007. H. (G.) tubulensis n. sp. is closely related to H. (G.) coreana in type of spicules and growth form. But it is different in size of toxas and oscules. Toxa of H. (G.) tubulensis n. sp. is one type and its oscules are tuberculated. The toxa of H. (G.) coreana is two types and lacks projections. The overall shape and spiculation of H. (G.) marismedi are nearly identical with specimens described by Pulitzer-Finali (1977).

Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 24, issue 2, 2008, Pages 151~153
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2008.24.2.151
A female crab of Xenocarcinus conicus (A. Milne Edwards, 1865) was collected from Munseum, Jejudo Island. The genus Xenocarcinus is recorded newly in Korean brachyuran fauna. The present specimen has broader and shorter rostrum and eleven sharp teeth on the inner border of dactylus of the first ambulatory leg. Korean epialtid fauna now consists of eight species of four genera.

Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 24, issue 2, 2008, Pages 155~160
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2008.24.2.155
Eight caprellids are collected from the several islands off Yeonggwang, Jeollanam-do at June 2007. Among them Caprella chelimana Mayer, 1903 is newly added to the Korean caprellid fauna. We described this species with illustrations and mentioned some differences from Mayer's original descriptions. Caprella subtilis is also the first record since Mayer reported this species from East Sea (Sea of Japan) in 1903.
A New Species of the Genus Pithemera (Oligochaeta: Megascolecidae) from Namat NBCA, Laos
Hong, Yong ; James, Samuel W. ; Inkhavilay, Khamla ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 24, issue 2, 2008, Pages 161~164
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2008.24.2.161
As a result of a taxonomic study on the earthworm material collected from Namat National Biodiversity Conservation Area (NBCA), Hoaphane Province, Laos, a new species, Pithemera viengthongensis sp. novo is described from near Namchong river, Viengthong district. The new species bearing two pairs of spermathecal pores in 7/8, 8/9 is not assignable to any other species of Pithemera as defined by Sims and Easton (1972). In the new species, the male pore region has kidney-shaped pads extending between XVII-19/20, the male pores and spermathecal pores are 0.31 circumference apart, and genital papillae are lacking. The ventral view of anterior body region and the spermathecae are illustrated.
A New Species of the Monotypic Genus Anaxyrina Meyrick (Lepidoptera, Lecithoceridae, Torodorinae)
Park, Kyu-Tek ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 24, issue 2, 2008, Pages 165~167
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2008.24.2.165
A new species of Anaxyrina Meyrick, A. albicostalis sp. novo (Lepidoptera, Lecithoceridae, Torodorinae) is described from Thailand and the Philippines. The genus has been known only by the type species, A. cyanopa Meyrick from N. India. Image of adult, forewing venation and illustrations of the male genitalia with aedeagus for the new species are provided.
Taxonomic Status of Siberian Flying Squirrel from Korea (Pteromys volans aluco Thomas 1907)
Koh, Hung-Sun ; Jin, Yi ; Yang, Beong-Guk ; Lee, Bae-Keun ; Heo, Seon-Wook ; Jang, Kyung-Hee ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 24, issue 2, 2008, Pages 169~172
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2008.24.2.169
Sequences of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) cytochrome b gene (1,140 bp) and control region (803 bp) of Siberian flying squirrels from Korea (Pteromys volans aluco) and Mt. Changbai of northeast China (P. v. arsenjevi) were obtained to reexamine the taxonomic status of the Korean subspecies. In the cytochrome b gene, six haplotypes of P. v. aluco formed a clade with six haplotypes of P. v. arsenjevi, and in control region, seven haplotypes of P. v. aluco formed a clade with six haplotypes of P. v. arsenjevi. Furthermore, six haplotypes of cytochrome b gene of P. v. aluco from this study formed a clade with four haplotypes of P. v. arsenjevi in far-east Russia obtained from GenBank. We also investigated the research papers previously published that reported the length of tail vertebrae of P. volans, and found that the length was not sufficiently large as to be a key character of P. v. aluco. This result is not consistent with morphological description for its haplotype. Therefore, we conclude that P. v. aluco from Korea might possibly be a synonym of P. v. arsenjevi from northeast China and nearby Russia.

DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2008.24.2.185
Two species of the chloroperlid stonefly, Alloperla medlata and Sweltsa illiesi, are reported for the first time in Korea. Alloperla mediata can be distinguished by the smaller epiproct and the presence of a median sclerite under epiproct in male, and by the modified subgenital plate in female. Sweltsa illiesi can be distinguished by the presence of a pair of ridges on tergum 9 in male and upward V-shaped pattern on the center of head in adults. The line drawings of diagnostic characters and taxonomic remarks of the two species are provided with keys and comparative characters for adults of Korean Chloroperlidae.

Two New Marine Sponges of Genus Halichondria (Halichondrida: Halichondriidae) from Korea
Kang, Dong-Won ; Sim, Chung-Ja ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 24, issue 2, 2008, Pages 205~208
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2008.24.2.205
Two new marine sponges in family Halichondriidae, Halichondria ulleungensis n. sp. and H. hongdoenesis n. sp. are collected from Ulleungdo Island and Hongdo Island, Korea by SCUBA diving during 2003-2004. H. ulleungensis n. sp. is similar to H. corrugata Diaz, Pomponi and van Soest, 1993 in the type of spicule, but it is different in growth form and choanosomal skeleton. The growth form is encrusting, with numerous erected cylindrical tube, comparing with massive-lobate of H. corrugata. The choanosomal skeleton is confused with loosely arranged oxea tract, comparing with densely tracts with many spicules of H. corrugata. H. hongdoenesis n. sp. is similar to H. surrubicunda Hoshino, 1981 in type of spicule and growth form, but this species has two kinds (thick and thin) of oxea.

Chang, Cheon-Young ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 24, issue 2, 2008, Pages 229~240
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2008.24.2.229
Four harpacticoid species belonging to the family Tachidiidae are reported from the coastal waters and salt marshes in South Korea: Tachidius discipes Giesbrecht, 1881, Neotachidius parvus Huys, Ohtsuka, Conroy-Dalton and Kikuchi, 2005, Microarthridion litospinatus Shen and Tai, 1973 and Geeopsis incisipes (Klie, 1913). The latter two species and genera are new to Korean fauna. The previous record of T. discipes reported by Song and Chang (1995) from Korea is affirmed by the finding of male specimens. Microarthridion litospinatus is first known outside the type locality, and redescribed herein in detail. A key to the five species and four genera of the family Tachidiidae hitherto known from South Korea is presented.
