Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 25, issue 1, 2009, Pages 1~4
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2009.25.1.001
Korean species of the genus Ophion Fabricius are reviewed. Eight species are recognized including two species new to Korea (O. ainoicus Uchida, 1928 and O. choaspese (Uchida, 1954). We provide a key to the Korean Ophion and redescriptions, photographs, distributional data and host records of the newly recorded species.
Artotrogus gordoni n. sp. (Copepoda: Siphonostomatoida: Artotrogidae) Assocaited with the Bryozoan Schizosmittina cinctipora (Hincks) from New Zealand
Kim, Il-Hoi ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 25, issue 1, 2009, Pages 5~9
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2009.25.1.005
Artotrogus gordoni n. sp. is described as an associate of the bryzoan Schizosmittina cinctipora (Hincks, 1885) collected from an intertidal shore in New Zealand. The new species is similar to A. sardae McKinnon but distinguishable from it by the different shapes of antennule where the first segment is the longest and urosome where the anal somite is distinctly narrower than the genital double somite and posterolateral processes on the genital double somite which is tapered and much more developed than in A. sardae.

This new species is similar to D. bistellata (Schmidt, 1862) in growth form and skeletal structure but differs in the composition and size of spicules. The genus Diplastrella is reported for the first time in Korea.
Taxonomic Review of the Korean Pyrgotidae (Insecta: Diptera: Tephritoidea)
Kim, Sam-Kyu ; Han, Ho-Yeon ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 25, issue 1, 2009, Pages 65~80
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2009.25.1.065
Pyrgotidae is a small acalyptrate family including about 370 species worldwide and little attention has been given to their systematics until recently. Latest changes in taxonomic status of some of the Korean species made this review inevitable. In the present study, the Korean pyrgotid species are reviewed with discussion of their taxonomic status. We also provide a revised key to all 14 Korean species (seven Adapsilia, three Eupyrgota, two Parageloemyia, one Porpomastix, and one Tephritopyrgota species) supplemented by digital images to facilitate accurate identification.
Three New Records of Hydroids (Cnidaria: Hydrozoa) in Korean Waters

Some hydroid specimens were collected from 10-14 m deep of Munseom (Jejudo Is.) on 22 June 2007, and from 20-25 m deep of Nagokkkottdongsan (Uljin) on 10 Jan. 2008 by SCUBA diving. Among the identified species, the following three species, Solanderia spinosa (Carter, 1892), Lafoea dumosa (Fleming, 1828) and Rhizocaulus verticillatus (Linnaeus, 1758) were turned out to be new to the Korean fauna.
A New Record of Nyctalus furvus (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae) from Korea, and the Description of Tadarida teniotis (Chiroptera: Molossidae), a Rarely Collected Bat in Korea
Yoon, Myung-Hee ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 25, issue 1, 2009, Pages 87~93
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2009.25.1.087
Taxonomic studies on two bat species, Nyctalus furvus Imaizumi and Yoshiyuki 1968 belonging to the Vespertilionidae, and Tadarida teniotis (Rafinesque) 1814 belonging to the Molossidae collected at Busan, Korea were carried out. The former, which has been known as an endemic species in Japan, is newly recorded in the Korean fauna and the latter is a very rare species which has not been collected since 1928 (Ognev, 1928) until two females were collected at Busan in this study, although Kishida and Mori (1931) reported the occurrence of the latter with no collecting record. Due to the addition of the former to the South Korean bat fauna, the bat fauna is composed of a total of twenty one species and one subspecies belonging to three families.
Nemoura phasianusa, a New Species of Nemouridae (Insecta: Plecoptera) from Korea

Kim, Jeong-Ho ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 25, issue 1, 2009, Pages 129~132
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2009.25.1.129
Menziesia sebastodis (Capsalidae: Monogenea) is found and described from the gill filaments and the gill rakers of the black rockfish, Sebastes inermis, caught at Dolsan Island, off the south coast of Yeosu, Jeollanam-do, Korea. The genus Menziesia is distinguished from other related genera Benedenia, Megalobenedenia and Trochopus, by septate haptors and the morphology of copulatory organs. M. sebastodis can be differentiated from other Menziesia species by the longer and slenderer posterior anchor, and the location of accessory gland reservoir. This is the first record of the genus Menziesia in Korea.
