Three Miraciid Copepods (Harpacticoida, Miraciidae) from South Korea
Chang, Cheon-Young ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 25, issue 3, 2009, Pages 215~225
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2009.25.3.215
Three harpacticoid species of the family Miraciidae are reported from neritic and brackish waters in Korea: Amphiascus kawamurai Ueda and Nagai, 2005, Schizopera clandestina (Klie, 1924) and Schizopera neglecta Akatova, 1935. Amphiascus kawamurai is newly recorded from Korea. Redescription is provided with the systematic accounts and illustrations of them.
New Record of Two Species in Stichotrichous Ciliates (Ciliophora: Stichotrichia) from Korea
Jung, Jae-Ho ; Min, Gi-Sik ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 25, issue 3, 2009, Pages 227~236
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2009.25.3.227
Two stichotrichous ciliates, Amphisiella annulata (Kahl, 1928) and Pseudoamphisiella alveolata (Kahl, 1932), were collected from the Yellow Sea in Incheon, Korea and were identified as new to Korea. The main diagnostic key to the species of the genera are that the two species share the features of two macronuclear nodules, one marginal row per side, and transverse cirri. A. annulata is distinguishable from other members in the genus mainly due to the several ring-shaped (hollow) structures in its cytoplasm and its wide and narrowly arranged amphisiellid median cirral row. P. alveolata has a conspicuous alveolar layer and two conspicuous macronuclear nodules, but no frontoterminal cirri.
First Zoeas of Two Palaemon Species (Decapoda: Caridea: Palaemoninae) Hatched in the Laboratory
Yang, Hoi-Jeong ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 25, issue 3, 2009, Pages 237~242
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2009.25.3.237
The first zoeas of Chinese ditch prawn Palaemon gravieri (Yu, 1930) and carpenter shrimp Palaemon serrifer (Stimpson, 1860) are described and illustrated in detail based on laboratory-hatched material. They are distinguished from those of Palaemon ortmanni (Rathbun, 1902) and Palaemon pacificus (Stimpson, 1860), previously known larvae from Korean waters by the length of the rostrum and endopod of antenna, the shape of the third abdominal somite, and ornamentation of the fifth abdominal somite. Larval characters of the genus Palaemon are revised. A. provisional key to the known first zoeas of Palaemon from Korean waters is given.

Choi, Chang-Yong ; Park, Jong-Gil ; Lee, Yun-Sun ; Min, Mi-Sook ; Bing, Gi-Chang ; Hong, Gil-Pyo ; Lee, Hang ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 25, issue 3, 2009, Pages 269~273

On 28 April 2008, a male Himalayan Swiftlet (Aerodramus brevirostris) was captured and examined at a night roost of swallows on Hongdo Island, Jeollanam-do, Korea. This is the first record of this species from Korea confirmed by specimen examination. We describe morphological features and some phylogenetic notes of the Himalayan Swiftlet found.
Zoeal Stages of Fat-Handed Snapping Shrimp Synalpheus tumidomanus (Decapoda: Caridea: Alpheidae) Reared in the Laboratory
Yang, Hoi-Jeong ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 25, issue 3, 2009, Pages 275~281
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2009.25.3.275
The first three zoeal stages of fat-handed snapping shrimp Synalpheus tumodomanus (Paulson, 1875) are described and illustrated in detail based on laboratory-reared material. Morphological comparison is made with previous description of S. tumidomanus from Indian waters. Three segmented scale of the antenna and the length of the endopod of antenna readily distinguish the first zoeas of S. tumidomanus from those of S. neomeris, the other known species of the genus Synalpheus from Korea.

New Record of Leucosiid Crab Nursia rhomboidalis (Crustacea: Decapoda: Brachyura) from Korea
Lee, Sang-Kyu ; Song, Sung-Joon ; Kim, Won ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 25, issue 3, 2009, Pages 287~289
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2009.25.3.287
The leucosiid crabs are common species on soft sediment from the intertidal flat to shelf and slope depths. The genus Nursia Leach, 1817 is characterized by the pentagonal shape of the carapace and the presence of the buccal cavern on the pterygostomian region. As a result of the systematic study on the Korean brachyuran species, Nursia rhomboidalis (Miers, 1879) is newly recorded in Korean fauna. Korean Leucosiidae is now composed of 14 species belonging to eight genera. The description and illustrations of this species are provided.

Cha, Dong-Jun ; Han, Ho-Yeon ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 25, issue 3, 2009, Pages 309~316
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2009.25.3.309
As a result of an ongoing systematic study of the genus Phasia Latreille in Korea, we have discovered P. aurigera and P. takanoi for the first time in Korea. We here provide detailed redescriptions and illustrations with their diagnostic characters indicated. Phasia aurigera can be distinguished from other congeners by the combination of the following characteristics: 1) scutum with distinct yellow pruinose spot; 2) male abdominal tergite 5 posteromarginally with V-shaped yellow pruinosity; 3) distiphallus divided into anterior and posterior processes; 4) female sternite 7 short, as long as or slightly longer than sternite 6 (visible part); and 5) female sternite 8 (ovipositor) bent dorsally. Phasia takanoi can also be distinguished by the combination of the following characteristics: 1) abdominal tergites strongly shiny; 2) surstylus strongly bent upward; and 3) posterior margin of female sternite 7 straight in ventral view.

Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 25, issue 3, 2009, Pages 317~323
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2009.25.3.317
Seventeen caprellid species are reported from adjacent waters, of the Goheung Peninsula, Jeollanam-do in June, 2008. Among them Paracaprella crassa Mayer, 1903 is newly added to the Korean fauna. We described this species with illustrations and mentioned some differences from the original description and subsequent redescriptions. As a result, Korean caprellid fauna consists of 34 species in 6 genera.
Genetic Distribution Pattern of Bluegill Sunfish Lepomis macrochirus in Freshwater Ecosystems across Korea
Lau, Hwee Hui ; Huang, Jingting ; Kwan, Ye-Seul ; Lee, Wan-Ok ; Won, Yong-Jin ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 25, issue 3, 2009, Pages 325~329
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2009.25.3.325
Lepomis macrochirus from the family Centrarchidae, commonly known as Bluegill sunfish, is an introduced freshwater fish in Korea that thrives in lakes, ponds, reservoirs and rivers. Since its introduction into Korea in 1969, Lepomis macrochirus has rapidly dispersed out and increased in number almost all over the freshwater ecosystems in Korea. Consequently this species causes a severe ecological problem, threatening native fishes due to its omnivorous foraging behaviors upon fish juveniles and many freshwater invertebrates. To address population genetic structure of L. macrochirus, 74 fish samples from 10 populations were collected and compared for their mitochondrial D-loop control region. As the result we found that the genetic diversity of L. macrochirus is extremely low such as resulting only four haplotypes with a few nucleotide differences among them. Analysis of molecular variance (AMOVA) revealed that the source of population genetic variation is largely retained in the comparisons among individuals within populations, while it is relatively low with slight significance at the highest hierarchical group. This distribution pattern differs from what is expected when biogeography is under the influence of natural geographic barriers such as mountain ranges in Korea. Instead the result is accord with the influential role of random spreading events facilitated by local people for aquaculture and fishing, and subsequent dispersals since its single point of introduction into Korea.

Lee, Tack-Jun ; Shin, Sook ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 25, issue 3, 2009, Pages 331~333
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2009.25.3.331
A new asteroid specimen was collected at a depth of 400 m in the East Sea. It was identified as Lophaster furcilliger Fisher, 1905 belonging to the family Solasteridae of the order Velatida. This species is new to the Korean fauna. Thirty asteroid species including L. furcilliger have been reported in the East Sea of Korea so far.
