Two Brackish Cyclopoid Copepods from Southern Coast of Korea
Yoon, Hong-Ju ; Chang, Cheon-Young ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 24, issue 3, 2008, Pages 241~250
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2008.24.3.241
Two brackish cyclopoid species are reported mostly from the estuaries and salt marshes in the southern coast of Korea: Limnoithona sinensis (Burckhardt, 1913) and Apocyclops borneoensis Lindberg, 1954. The two species as well as the genera are newly added to Korean fauna. Herein, the redescription is provided with the systematic accounts and detailed illustrations of them.

Moon, Hye-Won ; Song, Jun-Im ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 24, issue 3, 2008, Pages 251~263
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2008.24.3.251
Eight species and four genera belonging to two families of antipatharians have been reported in Korea. In the present study, the major specimens were collected from the coastal areas of Jejudo Island from 2005 to 2006, and the other ones which have been deposited in the Natural History Museum and the Department of Life Science, Ewha Womans University during the period from 1965 to 2004 were reexamined. As a result of this work, four species, Myriopathes bifaria, M. stechowi, M. ulex and Plumapathes pennacea are new to Korean antipatharian fauna. In this study, total six species including previously recorded species of the family Myriopathidae were described. And the distribution range of Myriopathes lata was turned out to be expanded from southwestern sea to the eastern sea, up to Ulleungdo Is. of Korea. Especially, the sexuality and the gonadal stage of M. lata which are collected during their reproduction period were also determined by means of histological analysis.

Redescriptions of Two Closely Resembling Chrysotoxum Species (Insecta: Diptera: Syrphidae) New to Korea
Suk, Sang-Wook ; Choi, Deuk-Soo ; Han, Ho-Yeon ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 24, issue 3, 2008, Pages 299~305
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2008.24.3.299
As a result of ongoing systematic study of the genus Chrysotoxum, we have discovered C. ramphostomus and C. tuberculatum for the first time in Korea. These two species closely resemble each other and need to be identified with caution. We here provide detailed redescriptions and illustrations with their diagnostic characters indicated. Chrysotoxum tuberculatum can be readily distinguished from C. ramphostomus by the following characteristics: 1) hind trochanter with small tubercle; 2) compound eyes apparently bare; 3) basal 1/5 of hind femora brownish yellow; and 4) male genitalia asymmetrical in caudal view.
Redescriptions of Two Closely Resembling Linnaemya Species (Insecta: Diptera: Tachinidae) New to Korea

DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2008.24.3.307
In the process of revising the tachinid genus Linnaemya Robineau-Desvoidy in Korea, we have discovered two species for the first time in Korea. They closely resemble each other and need to be identified with caution. We here provide detailed redescriptions and illustrations with their diagnostic characters indicated. Linnaemya atriventris can be distinguished from L. hirtipennis by the combination of the following characteristics: 1) abdomen black in ground color; 2) wing vein R1 without setulose; 3) hypandrium without secondary posterior lobe; 4) male with antero-basal 1/3 of flagellomere 1 distinctly swollen; and 5) postgonite very weakly curved dorsally.

Shin, Sook ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 24, issue 3, 2008, Pages 323~326
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2008.24.3.323
Some sea urchins were collected from the subtidal rocky bottom of Munseom near Seogwipo, Jejudo Island by SCUBA diving from April to May, 2008 and identified on the basis of their morphological characteristics. Among them, Tripneustes gratilla (Linnaeus, 1758) of Family Toxopneustidae was newly recorded from Korea and redescribed on the specimen collected at a depth of 25 m between Munseom and Sekkiseom. The detailed morphological description was presented with the photographs. This species was characterized by the very naked median areas of ambulacral and interambulacral portions and this genus was the first record in Korea. Eighteen echinoids are so far recorded in Jejudo Island, Korea.
Molecular Phylogeny and Divergence Time Estimation of the Soft Coral Dendronephthya gigantea (Alcyonacea: Nephtheidae)

Soft coral Dendronephthya gigantea (Verrill, 1864) is a conspicuous species dominating shallow sea waters of Jejudo Island, Korea. Recently its whole mitochondrial genome sequencing was completed by us and the sequence information provided an opportunity to test the age of Octocorallia and time of evolutionary separation between some representative orders of the subclass Octocorallia. Molecular phylogenetic analyses based on 13 mitochondrial protein encoding genes revealed a polyphyletic relationship among octocorallians representing two orders (Alcyonacea and Gorgonacea) and four families (Alcyoniidae, Nephtheidae, Briareidae, and Gorgoniidae). Estimates of divergence times among octocorallians indicate that the first splitting might occur around end of or after Cretaceous period (50-79 million years ago (Ma)). The age is relatively young compared to the long history of stony sea corals (>240 Ma). Taken together our result suggests a possible relatively recent radiating evolution at least in the order Alcyonacea and Gorgonacea. Molecular dating and phylogenetic analysis based on much broader taxon sampling and many genes might give an insight into this interesting hypothesis.
