Taxonomic Review on the Genus Sciota (Lepidoptera, Pyralidae, Phycitinae) in Northeast China
Qi, Mu-Jie ; Park, Bo-Sun ; Han, Hui-Lin ; Bae, Yang-Seop ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 30, issue 2, 2014, Pages 59~64
DOI : 10.5635/ASED.2014.30.2.059
Three species of the genus Sciota Hulst, 1888 are recognized from Northeast China: Sciota cynicella (Christoph, 1881), Sciota fumella (Eversmann, 1844), and Sciota adelphella (Fischer von R
slerstamm, 1836), of which Sciota cynicella (Christoph, 1881) is reported for the first time from China. This species can be distinguished from congeners by the gray color of basal area, the straight antemedial line and the distinct postmedial line on the forewing; by the stout aedeagus in male genitalia. In this study, a key to Northeastern Chinese species of genus Sciota is presented, and the illustrations of adults and genitalia are also provided.

Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 30, issue 2, 2014, Pages 81~86
DOI : 10.5635/ASED.2014.30.2.081
Three new species of Amynthas (Clitellata: Megascolecidae) were discovered in the Nam Ha National Protected Area (NPA) of Laos. These are Amynthas namhaensis sp. nov., Amynthas vanhi sp. nov., and Amynthas angtanensis sp. nov. Amynthas namhaensis sp. nov. and Amynthas vanhi sp. nov. are athecal, with male pores 0.14-0.17 and 0.17-0.19 circumference apart ventrally, respectively. Amynthas angtanensis sp. nov. has four pairs of spermathecal pores on 4/5-7/8, with male pores very closely set at 0.07-0.1 circumference apart. Descriptions of the new species are provided, including illustrations of the ventral view, intestinal caeca, and spermathecae.
First Record of Orobdella tsushimensis (Hirudinida: Arhynchobdellida: Gastrostomobdellidae) from the Korean Peninsula and Molecular Phylogenetic Relationships of the Specimens
Nakano, Takafumi ; Seo, Hong-Yul ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 30, issue 2, 2014, Pages 87~94
DOI : 10.5635/ASED.2014.30.2.087
Specimens of the genus Orobdella Oka, 1895 from Korea, including various locations in the Korean Peninsula, were identified as Orobdella tsushimensis Nakano, 2011. Phylogenetic analyses using mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase subunit 1 (COI), ND1,
, 12S rRNA,
, and 16S rRNA markers show that the newly collected specimens form a monophyletic group with the known O. tsushimensis specimens. The genetic distance of COI of these specimens was in the range 0.4-6.6%. These results confirm that the newly collected specimens belong to O. tsushimensis. This is the first record of the genus Orobdella from the Korean Peninsula.
Four New Records of Holaxonia (Anthozoa: Octocorallia: Alcyonacea) from Korea
Kim, Min-Sun ; Song, Jun-Im ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 30, issue 2, 2014, Pages 95~102
DOI : 10.5635/ASED.2014.30.2.095
The four species of the suborder Holaxonia, Anthogorgia japonica Studer, 1889 of family Acanthogorgiidae, Astrogorgia rubra (Thomson & Henderson, 1906), Euplexaura attenuata (Nutting, 1910), and E. erecta (Kukenthal, 1908) of family Plexauridae have been newly recorded in Korea. They were collected from intertidal and sublittoral zones in the western and southern coasts and Jeju-do Island of Korea by SCUBA diving and fishing nets from 1969 to 2010. This study approaches holaxonians by focusing on external and internal morphologies including size, form, and color of colonies, branches, polyps, coenenchyme, axis, and spicules. Anthogorgia japonica is characterized by its planar growth form, dichotomously branched form, non-retractile polyps, and Astrogorgia rubra by arrangement of calyxes being situated in lateral side at stems and alternately in all sides at branches. Euplexaura attenuata is sparsely and laterally branched colony, and has straight wand-like stems. Euplexaura erecta has branches which run parallel to the main stem.

Micronesia is an island nation located north of Papua New Guinea in the Pacific Ocean. A survey was conducted on Chuuk, which is one of the four main islands of Micronesia, from 11-25 Nov 2012. Echinoderms collected at one intertidal area as well as at 16 SCUBA diving points of 10-40 m depths in the subtidal zone were identified based on morphological characteristics. In total, 35 species from 165 individuals were identified: two crinoids, eight asteroids, four ophiuroids, seven echinoids, and 14 holothuroids. Among them, one asteroid, one ophiuroid, one echinoid, and two holothuroids were newly recorded from Micronesia.
Two Aquatic Oligochaete Species, Dero dorsalis and Allonais pectinata (Annelida: Clitellata: Naididae), New to Korea
Lee, Jeounghee ; Jung, Jongwoo ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 30, issue 2, 2014, Pages 119~123
DOI : 10.5635/ASED.2014.30.2.119
The genera Dero and Allonais belong to the family Naididae. Most species in the genus Dero have unique morphological characters including a branchial fossa and/or gills at the posterior end of the body. The genus Allonais has no eyes unlike its close relative the genus Nais. Of these genera, one species of Dero, D. obtusa, was recently reported in Korea. However, the genus Allonais has not been recorded in Korea. Here, we report Dero dorsalis Ferroni
re, 1899 and Allonais pectinata (Stephenson, 1910) with a diagnosis and illustrations.

Jung, Daewui ; Lee, Jongrak ; Kim, Chang-Bae ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 30, issue 2, 2014, Pages 124~131
DOI : 10.5635/ASED.2014.30.2.124
The Korean nudibranch faunal study has been conducted since 2011 and five species including Dermatobranchus otome Baba, 1992, Mexichromis festiva (Angas, 1864), Noumea nivalis Baba, 1937, Hoplodoris armata (Baba, 1993), and Okenia hiroi (Baba, 1938) were newly reported with re-descriptions and figures. Also, Noumea purpurea Baba, 1949 was re-described with illustrations because previous records for this species were given without a description. Two congeneric species in the genus Noumea could be distinguished by ground color, dorsal markings, color of the mantle edge and gills, and mantle and dorsal marking. In addition, mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) sequences of five species were provided for further molecular identification study. Consequently, a total of 43 species have been reported for the Korean nudibranch fauna.

Five sea cucumbers were collected from Gisamun and Gonghyeonjin of Gangwon-do, in the East Sea, Korea from 27 December 2009 to 14 November 2012. These specimens were classified as Synallactes nozawai Mitsukuri, 1912 belonging to the family Synallactidae of order Aspidochirotida based on morphological characteristics. The family, genus and species are recorded for the first time from Korea. The distinct morphological characteristics of this species are as follows: body flexible, with thin gelatinous body wall; presence of numerous tubercles along dorsal ambulacra table of body wall consisted of three- or four-armed disk and a spire-form pillar. This species usually inhabits the deep sea and is distributed in the Northwest Pacific from northern Japan to Bering Sea.

A newly recorded species of gammaridean amphipod, Cryptodius kelleri (Br
ggen, 1907) belonging to the family Odiidae Coleman and Barnard, 1991 collected from the east coastal area of Korea. Cryptodius kelleri (Br
ggen) is characterized by the medially expanded maxillipedal palp article 2, smooth dorsal pereonites, propodochelate gnathopod 1, subchelate gnathopod 2, lacking the posterior process on the basis of pereopods 5-7, dorsal carination of pleonite 3, posterolateral upturned process of pleonite 3, and an entire telson. The species is described and fully illustrated in the present study. A key is also provided to the species of genus Cryptodius. This is the first record of the family Odiidae from Korea.
New Report on Two Species of Hippolytid Shrimps (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea) Collected at Sea Cucumber Farm, East Sea, Korea
Lee, Chu ; Nam, Myung-Mo ; Ko, Hyun Sook ; Lee, Kyu Hyun ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 30, issue 2, 2014, Pages 144~150
DOI : 10.5635/ASED.2014.30.2.144
Two species of hippolytid shrimps, Eualus kuratai Miyake and Hayashi, 1967 and Heptacarpus igarashii Hayashi and Chiba, 1989, were collected at a sea cucumber farm from the East Sea. These species are described and illustrated for the first time in Korea. Eualus kuratai is closely related to E. middendorffi; however, it lacks a dorsomedian spine on the fourth and fifth abdominal somites. Heptacarpus igarashii can be easily distinguished from other Korean Heptacarpus species due to its short rostrum that lacks ventral teeth on margin. This report extends the previously known ranges from Japan and Korea. In Korea, both genera, Eualus and Heptacarpus, have seven species according to the present report, respectively; moreover, hippolytid shrimps now consist of 31 species of nine genera.
Two Omaliine Species (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae) New to Korea
Kim, Tae-Kyu ; Ahn, Kee-Jeong ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 30, issue 2, 2014, Pages 151~157
DOI : 10.5635/ASED.2014.30.2.151
A taxonomic study of two omaliine genera Acruliopsis Zerche and Omalium Gravenhorst in Korea is presented. Two species (Acruliopsis ussuriensis Zerche and Omalium japonicum Sharp) are reported for the first time in Korea. Diagnoses of those two genera with redescriptions of the species are presented. Acruliopsis ussuriensis is distinguished by more or less short elytra, a pair of conspicuous processes on male sternite VII and emargination of outer lateral margin of paramere at base. Omalium japonicum is distinguished by brown elytra and structure of aedeagus with swollen median lobe and expanded paramere. Habitus photographs and illustrations of diagnostic characters are provided.
