A report of four unrecorded species of opisthobranch molluscs from Korea
Jung, Daewui ; Lee, Jongrak ; Kim, Chang-Bae ;
Journal of Species Research, volume 3, issue 1, 2014, Pages 1~6
DOI : 10.12651/JSR.2014.3.1.001
Four species of opisthobranch molluscs collected from Jeju Island were identified as Pleurobranchus peronii Cuvier, 1804, Pleurobranchus weberi (Bergh, 1905), Aplysiopsis nigra (Baba, 1949) and Stiliger aureomarginatus Jensen, 1993. All of the species and genera examined here are new to Korea. Pleurobranchus peronii and P. weberi were easily distinguished to each species by dorsal tubercles and markings. In this report, we provided descriptions and photographs of these species for identification.
Molecular phylogeny of Indonesian Lymantria Tussock Moths (Lepidoptera: Erebidae) based on CO I gene sequences
Sutrisno, Hari ;
Journal of Species Research, volume 3, issue 1, 2014, Pages 7~16
DOI : 10.12651/JSR.2014.3.1.007
Many species of Lymantria are important forestry pests, including L. dispar which is well known distributed from Asia to North America as an invasive species. Like of most other genera of moths, the systematic of this genus is still in dispute, especially on the monophyly and the relationship within this genus due to the fact that genus is very large and varied. This genus was morphologically defined only by a single aphomorphy. To clarify the monophyly of the genus Lymantria, to reveal the phylogenetic relationship among the Indonesian species, and to establish the genetic characters of Indonesian Lymantria, we analyzed 9 species of Indonesian Lymantria involving 33 other species distributed around the world based on nucleotide sequence variation across a 516-bp region in the CO I gene. The results showed that the base composition of this region was a high A+T biased (C: 0.3333). The results also showed that the monophyly of Lymantria was not supported by bootstrap tests at any tree building methods. Indonesian species was distributed into four different groups but the relationship among them was still in dispute. It indicates that relationships among the basal nodes (groups) proposed here were least valid due to the fact that the number of species may not be enough to represent the real number of species in the nature. Moreover CO I gene sequences alone were not able to resolve their relationships at the basal nodes. More investigations were needed by including more species and other genes that the more conserved.
Morphological and ecological features of peripherial local populations of Bufo raddei Str. within the north - western part of their habitat
Tropina, Majya Gennadjevna ; Salovarov, Viktor Olegovich ;
Journal of Species Research, volume 3, issue 1, 2014, Pages 17~26
DOI : 10.12651/JSR.2014.3.1.017
The number of features related to morphology, distribution of habitats, biotopical distribution, and biology of species reproduction (within the territory described) of the Mongolian toad (Bufo raddei) which inhabits western shore of Lake Baikal were described. In this paper on the basis of the results of field studies in 1997, 2001, 2005, 2012 the original data on reproduction and chemical composition of the spawning ponds, used by frogs for reproduction, is presented. It was found that reproduction of species occurs in the salty steppe (14-45 g/L) lakes in the west part of the Baikal basin.
Two species of Tortanus (Eutortanus) (Copepoda: Calanoida: Tortanidae) new to Korea
Lim, Byung-Jin ; Min, Gi-Sik ;
Journal of Species Research, volume 3, issue 1, 2014, Pages 27~34
DOI : 10.12651/JSR.2014.3.1.027
Two species of Tortanus (Eutortanus) are newly recorded from shallow Korean waters: T. (E.) vermiculus Shen, 1955 and T. (E.) komachi Itoh, Ohtsuka and Sato, 2001. As a result of this study, five species are reported in the subgenus of the family Tortanidae in Korea. The sequence of cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 (CO1) is also provided as a molecular characteristic.
The influence of individual factors on the number of reindeer (Cervidae) in the Baikal region
Vashukevich, Yury Evgenjevich ; Zhovtyuk, Pavel Ivanovich ; Shvetsova, Svetlana Viktorovna ; Bogdanov, Alexandr Sergeevich ;
Journal of Species Research, volume 3, issue 1, 2014, Pages 35~38
DOI : 10.12651/JSR.2014.3.1.035
The article considers the influence of hunting (legitimate and uncontrolled) on the population of the Siberian roe deer, musk deer, elk, red and northern deer in Pribaikalje. The data on the forms and methods of hunting, the dynamics of the number of animals and the results of their production are given. For comparison, the acts of such a limiting factor as predators are specified. Reasons for the low number of wild ungulates are determined and main problems are formulated.
Molecular phylogeny of Daucus (Apiaceae): Evidence from nuclear ribosomal DNA ITS sequences
Lee, Byoung Yoon ; Park, Chong-Wook ;
Journal of Species Research, volume 3, issue 1, 2014, Pages 39~52
DOI : 10.12651/JSR.2014.3.1.039
The Apiaceae genus Daucus consists of approximately 25 species (including carrots) which are characterized by the presence of bracts in pedunculate umbels, dorsally compressed mericarps, hairs on primary ridges, and uniseriately arranged spines on the secondary ridges of the fruit. Taxonomically, Daucus has been considered to be one of the most problematic genera in the Apiaceae due to the highly variable fruit morphology. Despite taxonomic controversy and economic importance of the genus, no rigorously constructed estimate of phylogenetic relationships exists. To examine generic limit and relationships among species of Daucus and its putatively related taxa, phylogenetic analyses of characters derived from nuclear ribosomal DNA ITS sequences were conducted. Two major clades emerged within Daucus, but neither of them have been previously recognized using morphological characters. The phylogeny also provides taxonomic status of recently reported new species of Daucus, D. arcanus and D. conchitae.
Eight new records of monogonont and bdelloid rotifers from Korea
Song, Min Ok ;
Journal of Species Research, volume 3, issue 1, 2014, Pages 53~62
DOI : 10.12651/JSR.2014.3.1.053
The rotifers collected from a brackish water zone as well as various terrestrial habitats such as mosses, ichens, and leaf litter at seven different locations in Korea were investigated. Eight species/subspecies belonging to five genera in five families of monogonont and bdelloid rotifers new to Korea were identified: Encentrum incisum, Encentrum uncinatum, Cephalodella innesi, Adineta gracilis, Macrotrachella timida timida, Macrotrachella timida inquies, Habrotrocha pavida and Habrotrocha scabropyga. Five bdelloids are new to Asia as well. Notably, these eight Korean new records included three rare species. H. scabropyga is recorded outside its type locality for the first time. For M. timida timida, this study is the third record after its description. In addition, E. incisum has been reported only from Austria, Germany and Russia before the present study.
Contribution to the mite (Acari) fauna of the Korean Peninsula
Kontschan, Jeno ; Park, Sun Jae ; Lim, Jae Won ; Hwang, Jeong Mi ; Seo, Hong Yul ;
Journal of Species Research, volume 3, issue 1, 2014, Pages 63~78
DOI : 10.12651/JSR.2014.3.1.063
32 mite species are listed from the Korean Peninsula. One species belongs to the order Prostigmata, family Cryptognathidae, the order Mesostigmata has 20 species and the order Oribatida contains 11 species. Four species from the listed 32 are new for the fauna of the Korean Peninsula, one species belongs to the order Prostigmata (Favognathus maritimus (Shiba, 1969)) and three new species are Oribatida [Camisia biurus (Koch, 1839), Camisia biverrucata (Koch, 1839), Camisia horrida (Hermann, 1804)]. The 28 of the found species are collected in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea; the others were collected in the area of Republic of Korea. Illustrations and short descriptions about the newly found and rarely collected species are given.
Marine algal flora of Oho-ri, Gosung-gun, Gangwon-do, Korea
Bae, Eun Hee ; Oak, Jung Hyun ; Lee, Eun-Young ;
Journal of Species Research, volume 3, issue 1, 2014, Pages 79~94
DOI : 10.12651/JSR.2014.3.1.079
It was found that a total of 94 species of marine algae, 13 green algae, 24 brown algae, and 57 red algae, are living at the seashore of Oho-ri in this study. 739 voucher specimens for 94 species were made based on plants from March to September 2010 at the 3 islets, including Heukdo, Goraebawi, and Juckdo. Voucher specimens were catalogued and deposited in the herbarium of the National Institute of Biological Resources (KB) of Korea.
