Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 32, issue 3, 2016, Pages 169~183
DOI : 10.5635/ASED.2016.32.3.001
We reviewed Korean species of the genus Pimpla and confirmed 12 species. In this genus, 36 species have been reported from the Eastern Palaearctic region, eight species were from Korea. Also, we report four species, Pimpla albociliata Kasparyan, 1974, Pimpla femorella Kasparyan, 1974, Pimpla kaszabi (Momoi, 1973) and Pimpla melanacrias Perkins, 1941, which were newly recorded for the first time from Korea. Among them, Pimpla nipponica Uchida, 1928 is recorded from United States and the Nearctic region for the first time. A key to Korean species of the genus Pimpla, diagnoses and illustrations of adult external structures are provided.
Review of the Genus Hypsicera (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae: Metopiinae) from South Korea
Kang, Gyu-Won ; Choi, Jin-Kyung ; Suh, Kyong-In ; Lee, Jong-Wook ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 32, issue 3, 2016, Pages 184~196
DOI : 10.5635/ASED.2016.32.3.005
Hypsicera has been reported six species from South Korea. In this study, we reviewed 13 species of South Korean Hypsicera including seven newly recorded species from South Korea. Female of H. brevicornis and H. nigribasis are reported for the first time from South Korea since first record. Additionally, H. incarinata and H. yoshimoboi are reported new to China. We provide diagnoses of six newly recorded species and descriptions of two new females. We also provide photographs of key characters of seven newly recorded species and a key to 13 species of South Korean Hypsicera.
New Records of Cold-Water Corals from Korea
Song, Jun-Im ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 32, issue 3, 2016, Pages 197~206
DOI : 10.5635/ASED.2016.32.3.028
Two cold-water coral taxa, Octocorallia in the class Anthozoa and Stylasteridae in the class Hydrozoa, were identified. Deep-water samples were collected in fishing nets at depths ranging between 20 and 200 m along the coasts of the East Sea in Korea from 1976 to 1993. The two species found in this study represent new records for Korea: Paragorgia arborea (Linnaeus, 1758) in the class Anthozoa, and Stylaster profundiporus Broch, 1936 in the class Hydrozoa. Two families, Paragorgiidae and Stylasteridae, are also newly recorded in Korea. Furthermore, the species name of another cold-water gorgonian species, Primnoa pacifica (Kinoshita, 1907) in the family Primnoidae, is amended in this report. The two newly recorded cold-water coral species from Korea are described in detail based on their morphological characteristics. Paragorgia arborea is characterized by its growth form, medulla and cortex, zooid dimorphism, canal system, and spicule composition. Stylaster profundiporus is distinguished by its external skeletal characteristics, such as the coordination of dactylopores and gastropores, presence or absence of gastrostyles and dactylostyles, cyclosystem orientation, ampullar position, gastropore tube shape, and coenosteal texture.
A New Record of Microarthridion littorale (Copepoda, Harpacticoida, Tachidiidae) from Korea with Taxonomic Note on the Species
Kim, Jong Guk ; Choi, Hyun Ki ; Yoon, Seong Myeong ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 32, issue 3, 2016, Pages 207~218
DOI : 10.5635/ASED.2016.32.3.026
A harpacticoid copepod, Microarthridion littorale (Poppe, 1881), is newly recorded in Korea. Microarthridion species can be distinguished from each other by a combination of the number of the antennular segment, the number of the seta on the antennary exopod, and the armature of the thoracopod legs. Korean materials examined coincide well with M. littorale on these well-known characteristics. However, there are some minor differences in the ornamentations of the maxilliped and swimming legs. The specimens show additional sexual dimorphisms in the setae on enp-3 of P1 and exp-3 of P2-P4. Morphological diversity of so-called M. littorale is also discussed here with detailed features.
A New Species of the Genus Bryocamptus (Copepoda, Harpacticoida, Canthocamptidae) from Alpine Wetlands at Jeju Island, Korea
Lee, Jimin ; Chang, Cheon Young ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 32, issue 3, 2016, Pages 219~229
DOI : 10.5635/ASED.2016.32.3.024
Material of a Bryocamptus species, formerly reported as B. umiatensis Wilson, 1958 from Sakhalin and South Korea, is here recognized as a distinct new species. Specimens of both sexes were recently obtained from an alpine wetland, Sumeunmulbaengdui, located in the Hallasan National Park, Korea, and newly registered as a Ramsar Wetland in 2015. The new species, B. jejuensis n. sp., differs from the type population of B. umiatensis from Alaska by the smooth margin of the anal operculum in both sexes, the peculiarly modified terminal seta on the distal endopodal segment of the male leg 3, the sword-like spinous seta on the distal endopodal segment of the male leg 4, and the presence of a setule row on the inner distal margin of the caudal rami in the female. Both sexes of the new species are described in detail with particular reference to the male characters. A revised key to the seven species of the genus Bryocamptus Chappuis, 1929 occurring in Korean waters is provided.
A New Species of the Genus Orthotrichia (Trichoptera, Hydroptilidae) from Korea
Ito, Tomiko ; Park, Sun Jin ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 32, issue 3, 2016, Pages 230~233
DOI : 10.5635/ASED.2016.32.3.017
In the family Hydroptilidae, Trichoptera, 11 species in 3 genera, Hydroptila Dalman, 1819, Oxyethira Eaton, 1873 and Stactobia McLachlan, 1880, have been recorded from the Korean Peninsula but, until now, no species in the genus Orthotrichia Eaton, 1873. In this paper, we describe a new Korean species, Orthotrichia coreana sp. nov., based on adult specimens from the middle reaches of rivers in the southern region of the peninsula. This species is similar to O. iriomotensis Ito, 2013 from the southernmost region of Japan, but is clearly discriminated from the latter by features of the male and female genitalia.
First Report of Two Species of Mantid Shrimps (Stomatopoda: Squilloidea: Squillidae) from Korean Waters
Kang, Jung-Ha ; Lee, Seok Hyun ; Ko, Hyun Sook ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 32, issue 3, 2016, Pages 234~239
DOI : 10.5635/ASED.2016.32.3.022
Two species of mantid shrimps were collected from southern part of Korea and identified as Kempella mikado and Squilloides leptosquilla of the Squillidae. The former species is characterized by having a dactylus of the raptorial claw with six teeth, only the fifth thoracic somite with a single spinous lateral process, and the fifth abdominal somite with a pair of black dorsal patches. However, the latter species is characterized by having a dactylus of the raptorial claw with four teeth, and the fifth to seventh thoracic somites each with a single lateral process. Both species are described with figures and photographs. The present records are extensions of their geographical distributions and new records in Korea. Hence, a total of six species of the stomatopods have been recorded in Korea up to date: Oratosquilla oratoria, Faughnia formosae, Taku spinosocarinatus, Chorisquilla spinosissima, Kempella mikado, and Squilloides leptosquilla.
