Six new species of Copepoda (Clausiidae, Pseudanthessiidae, Polyankyliidae) associated with polychaetes from Korea
Kim, Il-Hoi ;
Journal of Species Research, volume 3, issue 2, 2014, Pages 95~122
DOI : 10.12651/JSR.2014.3.2.095
Six new species of copepods associated with polychaetes are described from Korea. Included are Indoclausia bipartita n. sp., Clausia parva n. sp., and Maxilliclausia propria n. gen. n. sp. in the Clausiidae; Pseudanthessius excertus n. sp. in the Pseudanthessiidae; and Polyankylis ovilaxa n. sp. and Sewelloya plana n. gen. n. sp. in the Polyankyliidae. The new genus Maxilliclausia has a peculiar maxilla in which the distal segment forms a sucking disk, a non-prehensile antenna, vestigial legs 3 and 5, and lacks a maxilliped and leg 4. The two new species of the Polyankyllidae are discovered as external associates of terebellid polychaetes. The new genus Sewelloya has a simple female maxilliped bearing only two small setae on its terminal segment, an uniramous leg 4 bearing 1-segmented exopod, and a reduced leg 5 represented by three setae. The genera Terebelliphilus Kim, 2001 which was originally placed in the Sabelliphilidae, and Octophiophora Stock, 1988 and Stockia Sebastian and Pillai, 1974, both of the latters with uncertain familial positions, are transferred to the Polyankyliidae. A key to five genera of the Polyankyliidae are provided.
List of beetles (Coleoptera) associated with the oyster mushroom, Pleurotus ostreatus Fr., in the Onon-Balj National Park of Mongolia
Jung, Boo Hee ; Park, Sun-Jae ;
Journal of Species Research, volume 3, issue 2, 2014, Pages 123~126
DOI : 10.12651/JSR.2014.3.2.123
We present a list of the beetle species associated with the oyster mushroom, Pleurotus ostreatus Fr. in the birch forest of Onon-Balj National Park in Mongolia. A total of 21 species in seven families were found in this fungus, including fungivorous species: Litargus japonicus Reitter and Mycetophagus antennatus (Reitter) (Mycetophagidae), Pseudamblyopus similis (Lewis) (Erotylidae), and Lordithon sp. (Staphylinidae) etc. Both adult and larval forms are presented in the checklist along with the type of fungal association, of which approximately 52 percent are obligate mycetobionts. The main trends of the ecological and trophic specialization of the mycetophilic beetles are discussed.
Reports of Drawida (Oligochaeta: Moniligastridae) from far East Asia
Blakemore, Robert J. ; Lee, Seunghan ; Seo, Hong-Yul ;

Moniligastrids are an important yet often ignored earthworm group commonly found in cultivated soils, especially paddy, in the tropical East. Seven new taxa are: Drawida koreana austri, D. koreana nanjiro, D. koreana shindo, D. odaesan, D. jeombongsan, D. companio and D. csuzdii Blakemore spp. or sub-spp. nov. from Korea. Drawida csuzdii is the first new species from North Korea since Lumbricidae Eisenia koreana (Zicsi, 1972). Historical East Asian moniligastrids are reviewed chronologically and Drawida barwelli (Beddard, 1886), D. japonica (Michaelsen, 1892) and D. siemsseni Michaelsen, 1910 are compared on their museum types. These three taxa were thought similar and related to D. nepalensis Michaelsen, 1907 and its possible synonym D. burchardi Michaelsen, 1903 (priority!) and both of these to prior D. uniqua (Bourne, 1887). Indian Drawida calebi Gates, 1945 is compared to new material of D. japonica from Japan, and D. willsi Michaelsen, 1907 to the new sub-species of D. koreana Kobayashi, 1938 from Korea. Where available, mtDNA COI gene barcodes are provided to help objective determinations and a phylogram is provided with outgroup Ocnerodrilidae Eukerria saltensis (Beddard, 1895) itself found in rice paddy/irrigation. The challenge now is comparison of all early taxa in their various homelands in order to assess the genetic variability and taxonomic boundaries acceptable, especially for unpigmented D. barwelli and also for pink/grey D. japonica and blue/grey D. koreana. A checklist of moniligastrids is appended showing 22 species from China (including Hainan and Taiwan), 21 from Korea, nine from Japan and the Drawida ghilarovi Gates, 1969 species-complex from far eastern Russian (Siberia). Recent Drawida dandongensis Zhang & Sun, 2014 from Sino-Korean border is misdescribed and cannot be meaningfully compared to any other Drawidas.
New Limoniinae crane flies (Diptera: Limoniidae) of Korea
Podenas, Sigitas ; Byun, Hye-Woo ;
Journal of Species Research, volume 3, issue 2, 2014, Pages 167~182
DOI : 10.12651/JSR.2014.3.2.167
Korean species of Achyrolimonia, Dicranoptycha and Helius crane flies (Diptera: Limoniidae) are taxonomically revised. Identification keys, redescriptions and illustrations of all species and both sexes, if they were found in Korea, are presented. Genus Achyrolimonia is new record for the Korean peninsula, genera Dicranoptycha and Helius are new records for South Korea, species Helius (Helius) obliteratus (Alexander, 1920) is new record for the Korean peninsula and new record for the continent. Illustrations of females of D. diacantha Alexander, 1938 and H. gracillimus Alexander, 1938 are provided and female of D. prolongata Alexander, 1938 is described and illustrated for the first time.

As part of a study to understand the current status of Korean plant species propagated in foreign countries, we conducted extensive surveys on Korean living collections in the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University, the oldest public arboretum in North America. Specifically, we collected and identified the voucher specimens of the living collections and further examined the collection databases to understand the history of how Korean plants were introduced to the Arboretum. We found that a total of 154 Korean taxa (belonging to 49 families and 81 genera) have been planted in the arboretum. Most plants originated from seeds that were directly collected in Korea or obtained via seed exchanges with botanical gardens in Asia, Europe, and U.S.A. Of the 154 taxa, 16 are Korean endemic species, and three are listed as endangered species. In addition, 62 taxa are as floristic regional indicator species of Korea used by the Ministry of Environment.
