Invasion of Foreign Barnacles into Korea Waters
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 8, issue 2, 1992, Pages 163~176
Three species of foreign barnacles were found to invade into Korean interitidal seashores: Balanus amphitrite, B. ebumeus and B. improvisus. The southeastern coast of Korea, near Pusan, is the area where all the specimens of three species were discovered and the populations of these species were well establishe. B. amphitrite is the earliest invader(probably invaded around early 1970's) and most widely distributed in Korea. It is now distributed all around Korea, except the Yellow Sea coast, north of Mokpo. B. improvisus has been successful to expand its reange to the northern part of Korean coast of the East Sea, whereas B. eburneus is restricted to the southeastern coast. B. amphitrite is successfully competing with the native barnacle, B. albicostatus, and in several areas where the mixed populations of the two species occur, the latter species is found to excluded. The Yellow Sea coast has not been invaded by the foreign barnacles, the reason of which is not known.
New Record of Ricefish, Oryzias latiper sinensis (Pisces, Oryzidae) from Korea
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 8, issue 2, 1992, Pages 177~182
A ricefish Oryzias latipes sinesis Chen et al. of the family Oryzidae is recorded for the first time from western Korea. The present speciment are similar to O. l. latipes in most morphometric characters, but agree well with the original description of O. l. sinensin based on the diploid chromosome number of 46 with two large metacentric chromosomes and the lesser vertebrae number.
A New Species of the Genus Gitanopsis (Amphipoda, Amphilochidae) from Korea
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 8, issue 2, 1992, Pages 183~188
Gitanopsis koreana, new species collected at Ganggu and Sadong in Korea is described and illustrated. This species is very close to G. robastodentes Hirayama, 1983 from west Kyushu, Japan. But, this new species is distinguished from G. robastodentes by the shorter ventrodistal extension of article 2 of gnathopod 2 and the shorter telson.
Electron-Morphometric Classification of the Native Honeybees from Korea Part V. Cluster Analysis by Canonical Function Score
Kwon Yong Jung ; Huh Eun Yeop ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 8, issue 2, 1992, Pages 189~200
In the present investigation, some cluster analyses were done for each population of the native honeybee workers(Apis cerana), which were selected for 15 different localities in spring and 16 in summer from Korea. In this analysis, the seasonal segregation was perfectly revealed by both Ward's and the average linkage between groups methods, whereas, it did not necessarily revealed any systematic relationship between geographical groups.
Nine Species of Tortricidae(Lepidoptera) New to Korea
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 8, issue 2, 1992, Pages 201~210
Two species of Tortricinae [Archips endoi Yasuda and Planostocha cumulata Meyrick] and 7 species of Olethreutinae [Epinotia ulmi Kuznetsov, E. contrariana Kuznetsov, Eudemopsis purpurissatana (Kennel), Statherotis towadaensis Kawabe, Apotomis vaccini Kuznetsov.

Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 8, issue 2, 1992, Pages 211~222
The systematic study of freshwater rotifers was conducted with the materials collected from 205 sites in South Korea. As a result, 4 subspecies, 3 from of Family Brachionidae (Keratella, Notholca) was identified; of which, 1 from is new to the Korean fauna: Keratella quadrata f. testudo. Total 135 species, 15 subspecies, 9 varieties and 10 forms representing 14 families 40 genera are now recorded from Korea by adding the 1 from newly described in the present paper.
Two Species of Genus Gordius(Gordioidea, Nematomorpha) from Korea
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 8, issue 2, 1992, Pages 223~230
The present study of hourse-hair worms was based on the materials collected from 17 areas in Korea during the period from October 1986 to June 1992. As a result the identified Korean horse-hair worms consist of 2 species in 1 genus. One is new species, Gordius lineatus n. sp. and the other, Gordius robustus Leidy, 1851 is newly recorded in South Korea. Total 6 species in 2 genera are now listed for the gordioidean fauna of Korea.
Systematic Studies on Korean Rodents: VI. Analysis of Morphometric Characters, Chromosomal Karyotypes and Mitochondrial DNA in Two Species of Genus Rattus
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 8, issue 2, 1992, Pages 231~242
Samples of two species of genus Ratts(black rat, Rattus rasttus Linnaeus; common rat, Rattus norvegicus Berkenhaut) in Korea were trapped and their 31 morphometric charcters were analyzed statistically in order to determine the range of geographic variation within each species and the interspecific differences. In addition, chromosomal G-bands and C-bands were compared and the fragment patterns of mtDNA resulted from the digestion with restriction enzymes were also analyzed. Samples of black rats from six localities in Korea were similar with one another in their morphometric characters: in head and body length, length of tail vertebrae, conventional karyotype and C-bands, they are comparable to Rattus rattus tanezumi in Japan. Specimens of common rats from seven localities in Korea were similar with one another in their morphometric characters: in conventional karyotype, they are comparable to Rattus norvegicus caraco in eastern Asia. Common rats differ from black rats in their morphometric characteris, chromosomal karyotypes and mtDNA. It is confirmed that correct species name of black rat in Korea is Rattus rattus tanezumi Tempminck: species name of common rat in Korea is Rattus norvegicus caraco Pallas: the common rat is a species, which is distinct from the black rat.
A Systematic Study on the Asteroidea in Korea I. Species from the South Sea
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 8, issue 2, 1992, Pages 243~258
For the systematic study of Korean Asteroidea the specimens collected from total 69 localities in the South Sea, Korea during the period from April, 1980 to Apirl, 1992 were indentified. As a result, 23 species, 18 genea, 8 families and 5 orders were identified of which two species, Mediaster brachiatus and Stellaster equestris have not been reported in Korea yet. Asterina perctinifera was the commonest species collected from 43 localities of 69 localities. Fifteen species were found in Korea Strait and Cheju Island area, respectively. Fifteen temperate species, 7 tropical species and 3 boreal species were found to be distributed in the South Sea of Korea. The asteroids known so far in Korea tuned out to be 43 species.

Song Jun-Im ;
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 8, issue 2, 1992, Pages 259~278
The zoantharians and ceriantiparians known from the Korea Strait are 21 species, 16 genera, 10 families in 3 orders, of which 6 species are newly recorded to the Korea Strait fauna. Three species of them are new to Korean waters: Flosmaria mustsuensis, Hormathia andersoni and Verrillactis paguri. The specimens were collected from 34 localities of Korea Strait from 1984 to 1991.
Zoogeographical Distribution of Marine Hydroids(Cnidaria: Hydrozoa: Hydroida) in Korea
Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity, volume 8, issue 2, 1992, Pages 279~300
The Korean marine hydrioid fauna identified up to data consists of 120 species of 55 genera in 17 families. Of which Abientiunaria filicula (Ellis and Solander, 1786) is new to the Korean fauna, and the dominant species of hydroids in Korean water is Sertularella miurensis Stechow, 1921 which is collected from 33 points of 96 localities. The coastal waters of Korea are divided into four regions : the East Sea, the South Sea, the Yellow sea and the Chejudo. Concerning the total number of species occured in each region, 43 species in the East Sea, 52 species in the Yellow Sea, 73 species in the South Sea and 83 species in the Chejudo and its vicinity. From the results above described it can be salid that the Chejudo region shows the most diversity of the Korea hydroids. The community coefficient of the East Sea-the Yellow Sea is 0.444, that of the East Sea-the South Sea 0.553, that of the East Sea-Chejudo 0.519, that of the Yellow Sea-the Sea 0.682, that of the Yellow Sea-the Chejudo 0.533 and that of the South Sea-the Chejudo 0.642. So that the zoogeographical relatinship between the Yellow Sea and the South Sea is the highest and between the East Sea and the Yellow Sea is the lowest on the hydroids distribution.

A large number of Demospongiate have been collected from 18 localities in Cheju Island and its adjacent waters during the period from 1970 to 1991.
