Larval Development of Oregonia gracilis (Crustacea: Decapoda: Majoidea: Oregoniidae) with a Key to the Known Oregoniid Zoeae from the Northern Pacific
Oh, Seong-Mi ; Ko, Hyun-Sook ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 26, issue 1, 2010, Pages 1~9
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2010.26.1.001
The larvae of Oregonia gracilis are described, illustrated and compared with those of other known species of the Oregoniidae. The first zoea of O. gracilis of the present study is somewhat different from that of Hart (1960) especially in having a basis and an endopod of the first maxilliped with 2, 2, 3, 3 and 3, 2, 1, 2, 5 setations, respectively and an endopod of the second maxilliped with 1, 1, 5 setation. It is found the Oregoniidae must be a homogeneous group based on the zoeal morphology. A provisional key for the identification of the known zoeae of the Oregoniidae from the northern Pacific is provided.

Kim, Sun-Woo ; Lee, Jea-Hyun ; Kim, Chang-Bae ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 26, issue 1, 2010, Pages 11~14
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2010.26.1.011
Four species in two genera of the family Doliolidae are identified and re-described in Korean waters: Doliolum denticulatum Quoy and Gaimard, 1834, Doliolum nationalis Borgert, 1894, Dolioletta gegenbauri (Uljanin, 1884), and Dolioletta tritonis (Herdman, 1888). Dolioletta gegenbauri is newly recorded in Korean fauna. A key to species of the family Doliolidae in Korea is provided.

The Russian ratsnake, Elaphe schrenckii, is found in Russia, China, and Korea, and is considered to be an endangered species by the Ministry of Environment in South Korea. Due to habitat loss and use in oriental medicine, their population has been severely decimated. In South Korea, two subspecies of E. schrenckii has been defined according to body color: E. s. schrenckii (blackish) and E. s. anomala (yellow-brownish). Molecular genetic studies on Elaphe schrenckii are very scarce and the taxonomy of Elaphe schrenckii subspecies is uncertain. From the present study, we attempted to identify the genetic differences of these two subspecies using species-specific microsatellites developed from the genomic library of E. schrenckii. Nine polymorphic loci were tested on 19 individuals from E. s. schrenckii (n=10) and E. s. anomala (n=9) in South Korea. The mean number of alleles was 3.78 in E. s. schrenckii and 4.11 in E. s. anomala. The average expected heterozygosity was 0.542 and 0.511 in E. s. schrenckii and E. s. anomala, respectively. We found a lack of genetic structure between two subspecies (
) and no genetic discrimination between two subspecies was found. Based on the present findings by microsatellites, two subspecies can be considered as one species, E. schrenckii. However, further investigations on taxonomical status using mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequences need to be performed and morphological & ecological data should be revised. The genetic markers should benefit future studies of the endangered species of other Elaphe species for the study of genetic diversity and potential conservation management.
First Record of Two Euplotes Ciliates (Ciliophora: Spirotrichea: Euplotida) from Korea
Park, Mi-Hyun ; Kim, Se-Joo ; Min, Gi-Sik ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 26, issue 1, 2010, Pages 21~27
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2010.26.1.021
Two marine euplotid ciliates, i.e. Euplotes cristatus Kahl, 1932 and E. minuta Yocom, 1930, were collected from the public waterfront of Incheon on the Yellow Sea and from the Songjeong Beach, Busan, in the Strait of Korea, respectively. These two species were verified as unrecorded species in Korea. These species were described based on live observation, protargol impregnation, and silver nitrate impregnation. In addition, the small subunit ribosomal DNA (SSU rDNA) sequences of the two species were compared with previously known sequences of the Euplotes species. Euplotes cristatus has an elongated oval form, size in vivo of
, 35-50 adoral zone of membranelles (AZM), 10 frontoventral cirri (FVC), 5 transverse cirri (TC), 4-5 caudal cirri (CC), 8 dorsal kineties (DK), 10-16 dorsal cilia of middle DK, and silverline system of single-vannus type. Euplotes minuta has a small ovoid form (
in vivo), 31-41 AZM, 10 FVC, 5 TC, 4 CC, 9 DK, 10-12 dorsal cilia of middle DK, and silverline system of single-vannus type.
A Taxonomic Review of the Marine Littoral Genus Caconemobius (Orthoptera: Gryllidae: Nemobiinae) in Korea

Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 26, issue 1, 2010, Pages 29~33
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2010.26.1.029
The genus Caconemobius comprises marine apterous crickets. In recent years, two species have been confirmed in Korea: Caconemobius sazanami (Furukawa, 1970) and Caconemobius takarai (
shiro, 1990). A key to species, descriptions, distribution data, photographs, and figures are presented to compare the two crickets.

Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 26, issue 1, 2010, Pages 35~37
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2010.26.1.035
A notodontid moth, Disparia diluta (Hampson, 1910) is reported for the first time from the Korean peninsula. At the same time, taxonomical note for D. nihonica (Wileman, 1911) is given. The male genitalia of D. nihonica (Wileman) were erroneously illustrated as those of Neodrymonia delia (Leech) by Tshisjakov and Kwon (1999), and Schintlmeister (2008) cited D. nihonica (Wileman) to be distributed in the Korean peninsula, based on the illustration.
