Korean Species of the Subgenus Ophina (Diptera: Tachinidae)
Lim, Jong-Su ; Han, Ho-Yeon ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 29, issue 3, 2013, Pages 207~216
DOI : 10.5635/ASED.2013.29.3.207
We recognized Linnaemya microchaetopsis Shima, L. picta (Meigen) and L. zachvatkini Zimin in Korean Linnaemya subgenus Ophina Robineau-Desvoidy and the latter two are reported for the first time in Korea. The subgenus Ophina shares the following morphological characteristics (sensu Shima): 1) the male tergite 6 is fused mid-dorsally with sternite 7+8; 2) the female tergite 6 and tergite 7 are almost always divided longitudinally into two hemitergites; 3) the female tergite 6 is always longer than the tergite 7; 4) circus parallel-sided in caudal view; 5) epiphallus present; and 6) pteropleural seta long, reaching posterior margin of lower calypter. We provide a key to the included Korean species, as well as descriptions and illustrations with their diagnostic characters indicated.
Two New and Three Newly Recorded Species of Chironomidae (Diptera) from Korea

DOI : 10.5635/ASED.2013.29.3.217
Chironomid adults were collected by light traps at night, sweeping on grasses, during daytime hours, sweeping of swarming males with an insect net, and aspiration of light-attracted adults using a sucking tube. The collected specimens were slide-mounted and examined. I identified two species new to science, namely Orthocladius manhaei n. sp. and Ablabesmyia jeongi n. sp., and three species for the first time in Korea: Paratrichocladius tamaator Sasa, 1981, Rheocricotopus chalybeatus (Edwards, 1929) and Hayesomyia tripunctata (Goetghebuer, 1922). This is the first report of the genera Rheocricotopus and Hayesomyia in Korea. The genus Hayesomyia in the tribe Pentaneurini of Tanypodinae has a Holarctic distribution with only one species recorded from each of the Palaearctic and Nearctic regions.
A New Species of Cletocamptus Copepoda (Harpacticoida, Canthocamptidae) from Salt Marshes in Korea
Chang, Cheon Young ;

DOI : 10.5635/ASED.2013.29.3.227
A new copepod species, Cletocamptus koreanus, is described from estuaries and salt marshes on south and southwest coasts in Korea. Cletocamptus koreanus n. sp. evidently belongs to C. deitersi species group in sharing 6-segmented antennule, 3 setae on antennary exopod, leg 1 with endopod shorter than exopod, and 2+1 inner setae on the third exopodal segments of legs 3-4. However, C. koreanus is distinguished from its allied congeneric species by different setal armatures of mandibular palp, antennary exopod, endopod of female leg 2 and the third exopodal segments of legs 3-4, and relative length and shape of apophysis of male leg 3 enp 2. Description and taxonomic accounts of the new species are presented herein, with detailed illustrations and scanning electron microscope photomicrographs. Discussion on the affinities with other species of C. deitersi group are provided, along with brief comments on the morphological discrepancies between the new species from Korea and other Asian species from China and India.
A First Record of the Genus Parastilomysis (Crustacea: Mysida: Mysidae) from Korea
Kim, Mijin ; Song, Sung Joon ; Kim, Won ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 29, issue 3, 2013, Pages 238~244
DOI : 10.5635/ASED.2013.29.3.238
A mysid species, Parastilomysis paradoxa Ii, 1936 belonging to the subfamily Mysinae Hansen, 1910 which comprises approximately 90% of all mysid species, is newly reported from Korean waters. The genus Parastilomysis Ii, 1936 which is also new to Korea, is distinctly different from other genera by having biramous third and fourth pleopods of the male, and telson with an apical cleft. In the present paper, authors provide detailed descriptions and illustrations of P. paradoxa based on the specimens collected from the southern coast of the Korean peninsula, and also discuss on the zoogeographical distribution herein. Parastilomysis paradoxa belongs to Mysidae Haworth, 1825, and is the 50th species in Korea.
First Report of the Mantid Shrimp Faughnia formosae (Stomatopoda: Parasquillidae) from Korea
Hwang, Hee-Seung ; Lee, Sang-Kyu ; Kim, Mijin ; Kim, Won ;

DOI : 10.5635/ASED.2013.29.3.245
The stomatopods are aggressive predatory marine crustaceans, which are mainly found in tropical and subtropical regions. Among these, a parasquillid stomatopod, Faughnia formosae Manning and Chan, 1997, collected from Jeju Island, is reported for the first time in Korea. The family is easily distinguished from other families by the presence of an asymmetrically bilobed cornea, stout propodus on the raptorial claw, and three primary spines of the uropodal protopod. In the paper, detailed descriptions and illustrations of this species are provided alongside a photograph. A key to the species of Korean mantis shrimp is also presented. As a result of this study, four species of stomatopods including this species are now recorded in Korean fauna.
Taxonomy of the Genus Hydrochus (Coleoptera: Hydrophilidae: Hydrochinae) in Korea
Lee, Dae-Hyun ; Lee, Soong Hwa ; Ahn, Kee-Jeong ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 29, issue 3, 2013, Pages 249~252
DOI : 10.5635/ASED.2013.29.3.249
A taxonomic study of the Korean Hydrochus Leach is presented. They inhabit in the margins of shallow lentic water with plentiful vegetation. The genus Hydrochus Leach contains about 28 species in the Palaearctic region and only H. japonicus Sharp is recently listed in Korea. Here, two species are recognized, one of which is reported for the first time in Korea (H. chubu Balfour-Browne & Sat
). This species are distinguished from H. aequalis Sharp by impressed pronotum and from H. japonicus by dark brown elytra. Habitus photographs, descriptions, and diagnostic characters with illustrations of the species are provided.
First Occurrence of Chromis albicauda (Pomacentridae, Perciformes) from Jeju Island, and Re-assignment of Yellow Chromis Specimens from Korea
Song, Young Sun ; Kim, Jin-Koo ; Kim, Byung-Jik ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 29, issue 3, 2013, Pages 253~258
DOI : 10.5635/ASED.2013.29.3.253
Two specimens of Chromis albicauda were collected from Jeju Island, Korea. The species is most similar to C. analis, but is distinguishable by the presence of a white caudal fin when alive, 4-5 scale rows on the anterior portion of the preorbital, and a blackish blotch around anal opening. The results of a molecular analysis based on mitochondrial DNA 16S rRNA sequences confirm that the two individuals are not C. analis but C. albicauda as the genetic distance between the two species is 0.044. A comparison of the two individuals of C. albicauda with yellow chromis shows that none of the previously reported yellow chromis is C. analis, but rather they are C. albicauda. Herein, we suggest the new Korean name "Huin-ggo-ri-no-rang-ja-ri-dom" for C. albicauda.
First Record of the Genus Paragrandidierella (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Aoridae) from Korea

DOI : 10.5635/ASED.2013.29.3.259
A newly recorded aorid species, Paragrandidierella minima Ariyama, 2002, from Korean waters is reported with a description and illustrations, and its generic features are considered. This species is characterized by the carpochelate gnathopod 1 in matured male, the posterodistal protrusion on peduncle 5 of antenna 2, the absence of the apical spine on inner plate of maxilliped, the minute apical projection on inner lobe of lower lip, the acute posteroproximal extension on the basis of each pereopod 5 and 6, the shape of uropods and telson, and the large inter-ramal process of uropod 1. This is the first report of the genus Paragrandidierella from Korea.
