A New Species of the Genus Penares (Demospongiae: Astrophorida: Ancorinidae) from Korea
Jeon, Yong-Jin ; Sim, Chung-Ja ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 25, issue 2, 2009, Pages 141~144
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2009.25.2.141
A new marine sponge in the family Ancorinidae, Penares hongdoensis n. sp. was collected from Hongdo Island, Korea by SCUBA diving in 2004. P. hongdoensis n. sp. is closely related to P. cortius de Laubenfels, 1930 in their spicules. However, they differ in kind and size of spicules and growth form. The dichotriaene rhabds of new species are larger than that of P. cortius. And the new species has oxyaster, but P. cortius has oxyspheraster. Although the growth forms of both species are irregular massive, this new species shows conspicuous long projection toward upper part.

Four species of the genus Atylus belonging to the family Dexaminidae are reported from the eastern and southern coasts of Korea. Three of these species are redescribed as new records of this country: Atylus (Atylus) ekmani (Gurjanova), A. (A.) matsukawaensis Hirayama and Takeuchi and A. (Kamehatylus) japonicus Nagata.

Taxonomic Study of Poorly-known Marine Pleurostomatid Ciliates of Litonotus paracygnus and L. pictus (Ciliophora: Pleurostomatida) from Korea
Kim, Se-Joo ; Min, Gi-Sik ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 25, issue 2, 2009, Pages 167~178
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2009.25.2.167
Two poorly known and often confused pleurostomatid ciliates, Litonotus paracygnus Song, 1994 and L. pictus Gruber, 1884, were collected from the coastal waters of Yeonggeumjeong and Bongpo-port, Gangwondo in the East Sea and from the Iwon tide embankment near Ganwol-do, Chungcheongnam-do in the Yellow Sea, Korea. These species were described based on live observations, the protargol-impregnation and morphometrics of the species. Also provided are their diagnoses. The small subunit ribosomal DNA (SSU rDNA) sequences of these species were compared with previously known sequences of related species. The diagnostics of the two Litonotus species are as follows. L. paracygnus: 150-300
m long in vivo, strongly contractile neck region, two ellipsoid macronuclei (Ma) and one micronucleus (Mi), 7 left (LSK) and 11-14 right somatic kineties (RSK), 2-4 contractile vacuoles (CV) located on the posterior end, extrusemes (Ex) distributed on the anterior region of the ventral margin only. L. pictus: about 200-600
m long in vivo, extremely contractile, beautiful body color with rows of yellow to yellow-brownish cortical pigment granules, 12-21 Ma arranged in moniliform pattern, infrequently vermiform, 7-11 LSK and 18-26 RSK, several CV located on both margins, Ex distributed on the anterior region of the ventral margin only. In this study, this genus was firstly recorded in Korea.
A New Species of the Family Halichondriidae (Demospongiae: Halichondrida) from Jeju-do Island, Korea
Kim, Hye-Ri ; Sim, Chung-Ja ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 25, issue 2, 2009, Pages 179~181
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2009.25.2.179
A new species of the genus Halichondria (Eumastia) maraensis n. sp. (Demospongiae: Halichondrida: Halichondriidae) was collected from West Marado Island, Daejeong-eup, Seogwipo-si, Jeju-do Island, Korea during the period of Dec. 2006 to Feb. 2007 by a fishing net (60-80 m in depth). Halichondria (E.) maraensis n. sp. is similar to H. (E.) sitiens (Schmidt, 1870) in the type of the spicules. However they differ in spicules size and conical fistules at the surface. Oxeas of the new species are smaller and thicker than those of H. (E.) sitiens. Surface conules of the new species is not transparent, and has no oscules at the terminal short conules but H. (E.) sitiens has hollow papillae and terminal oscules.
A New Species of the Genus Burmoniscus (Isopoda, Oniscidea, Philosciidae) from Ko Phuket, Thailand
Jeon, Dae-Soo ; Kwon, Do-Heon ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 25, issue 2, 2009, Pages 183~187
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2009.25.2.183
A new species, Burmoniscus phuketensis, is described from Ko Phuket, Thailand. The new species belongs to the group characterized by male pereopods 1 and 2 with enlarged and flattened carpi, including B. coecus (Budde-Lund, 1895), B. ferrarai (Schumalfuss, 1983), B. mossambicus (Ferrara and Taiti, 1985), B. rowei Taiti and Manicastri, 1988, and B. rakataensis Green, Ferrara and Taiti, 1990. Among them, this new species resembles B. coecus and B. rakataensis in the pigmentless body and the shape of pereonite 7 epimeron with acute postero-lateral corner, but is easily distinguished from both specie by the shape of telson. While the eyes are absent in B. coecus, they are present in this new species.
Two New Species of the Genus Nesodillo (Isopoda, Oniscidea, Armadillidae) from Philippines
Jeon, Dae-Soo ; Kwon, Do-Heon ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 25, issue 2, 2009, Pages 189~195
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2009.25.2.189
Two new species of the genus Nesodillo Verhoeff, 1926, N. kimi and N. philippinensis, are described from Philippines. For the shape of frontal shield, Nesodillo kimi resembles N. monticola (Vandel, 1973) from New Guinea, but differs from it in the shape of male pleopod 1 exopod. N. philippinensis is distinguished from N. kimi by the shape of frontal shield not depressed in the middle of upper border, and of telson with broadly rounded distal margin.

DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2009.25.2.205
The specimens of Peregrinamor ohshimai, an ecto-commensal species to Upogebia major, were collected from the mudflat of Chilcheondo Is., Geoje-si, Gyungsangnam-do, Korea and diagnostic characters of P. ohshimai were analyzed. The genus Peregrinamor is reported in Korean fauna for the first time.
A Redescription of Sciasmomyia supraorientalis (Insecta: Diptera: Lauxaniidae), the First Recorded Genus and Species in Korea
Lee, Hyun-Suk ; Han, Ho-Yeon ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 25, issue 2, 2009, Pages 209~213
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2009.25.2.209
The genus Sciasmomyia (Diptera: Lauxaniidae) was discovered for the first time in Korea. This Old World (PA and OR) genus currently includes two nominal species. In the process of revising Korean Lauxaniidae, we were able to collect Korean representatives of Sciasmomyia supraorientalis, and provide the redescriptions and illustrations of both sexes.
