The subfamily Murinae is a very controversial group concerning their phylogenetic relationship. Previous studies could not resolve phylogeny among four genera Apodemus, Micromys, Mus and Rattus of the Muridae. In the present study, eight rodent species resident in South Korea were collected and phylogenetically analyzed based on sequence data of five mitochondrial and nuclear DNA regions: 12S rRNA, cytochrome b gene (cyt b), cytochrome oxidase II (COII), control region of mitochondrial DNA, and a thyroglobulin (Tg) of nuclear DNA. According to the phylogeny of the concatenated data, M. musculus separated early in Murinae (ML 100%; BA 1.00 pp) and the genus Rattus grouped with the harvest mouse, M. minutes; these were separated from the genus Apodemus with relatively strong support (ML 74%; BA 0.76 pp). The Siberian chipmunk population was also examined using the five genes to obtain better resolution. The phylogeny for Korean rodents determined using the 12S rRNA, cyt b, COII and control regions discriminated the Siberian chipmunk populations from Korea, Russia, and China.

A study of Han River fish assemblage dynamics for 4 years was conducted. From April 2005 to August, 2008, fishes inhabiting two sites of Han River were sampled for identification. For further analysis, 40 individuals of the dominant species were sampled monthly from March 2006 to November 2008. The fish assemblage at site 1 was dominated by Zacco platypus (32.69%), while the subdominant species were Acheilognathus yamatsutae (14.4%), Acanthorhodeus gracilis (9.43%), Squalidus japonicus coreanus (6.84%), and Tridentiger brevispinis (5.18%). The most abundant species at site 2 was Korean Chub (Zacco koreanus) with relative abundance of 62.45% and followed by Pungtungia herzi (10.29%), Coreoperca herzi (8.67%), and Coreoleuciscus splendidus (6.82%) as the subdominant species. At both sites, the endemics populations show an increasing pattern during the whole survey period, while the natives were declining in the last two years.
Fauna of Non-biting Midges (Diptera, Chironomidae) from Soyang River in Chuncheon-si, Gangwon-do, Korea

Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 26, issue 2, 2010, Pages 115~140
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2010.26.2.115
Adults of Chironomidae were collected at Soyang river sites in Chuncheon-si, Gangwon-do on 1 August and 14 September in 2008, and 1 May in 2009. A total of 794 adults were collected, consisting of 52 species, 23 genera, 4 subfamilies. Among them, 7 species were recorded in Korea for the first time, and 9 species were new to science. These 7 previously unrecorded and 9 new species are described with illustrations. Eight species still have not been identified. The subfamily Prodiamesinae and four genera: Demicryptochironomus, Parakiefferiella, Psectrocladius and Monodiamesa are the first record in Korea. Tanytarsus seohyoni n. sp. was the most dominant species, consisting of 24.6% of the total samples.

DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2010.26.2.141
Psen ussuriensis Lith is reported for the first time in Korea. Diagnostic description and digital images of this species are provided. For future researchers, a key to higher taxa and a checklist of 36 valid Korean Pemphredononae species are also given.
New Records of Three Yponomeutine Moths (Lepidoptera: Yponomeutidae) from Korea
Sohn, Jae-Cheon ; Park, Kyu-Tek ; Cho, Soo-Won ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 26, issue 2, 2010, Pages 153~156
DOI : 10.5635/KJSZ.2010.26.2.153
Two species of Yponomeutinae new to Korea, Euhyponomeutoides trachydeltus (Meyrick) and Thecobathra anas (Stringer), are reported. In addition, occurrence of Yponomeuta anatolicus (Stringer) in Korea is confirmed with proper collection of data. The adults and genitalia for the three species are illustrated.

Gammaropsis utinomii New to Korea (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Photidae)
Kim, Young-Hyo ; Lee, Kyung-Sook ;

As a result of continuous taxonomic study on crabs, Clistocoeloma villosum (A. Milne-Edwards, 1869) is newly reported from Korean waters. C. villosum has no epibranchial tooth on the carapace, while C. merguiense De Man, 1888, only recorded species of this genus in Korean fauna, has two epibranchial teeth. The description and illustrations of C. villosum are provided herein. Korean Sesarmid crabs now consist of 10 species belonging to six genera.
