An unrecorded species in Korean flora : Hydrangea luteovenosa Koidz. (Hydrangeaceae)

An unrecorded species in Korean flora, Hydrangea luteovenosa Koidz. (Hydrangeaceae) was collected from parasitic cone, Seongneol-orom region of Mt. Halla in Prov. Jeju-do. This species is readily distinguishable from H serrata (Thunb.) Ser. and H. petiolaris Siebold & Zucc. in Korea by habit, length and width of leaves, length of petiole, morphology of petals and leaf margins, position of ovary, number of stamens and secondary veins.
A taxonomic review of Korean Lycoris (Amaryllidaceae)
Kim, Muyeol ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 34, issue 1, 2004, Pages 9~26
Texa of Lycoris in Korea were classified as five species with two varieties and revised taxonomically. Among the examined taxa, five Korean endemic plants were clarified: Lycoris flavescens M. Kim et S. Lee, L. uydoensis M. Kim, L. chejuensis Tae et S. Ko, L. chinensis var. sinuolata Tae et S. Ko, and L. sanguinea var. koreana (Nakai) T. Koyama. It was found that L. flavescens, L. uydoensis, and L. chejuensis were the natural hybrids between taxa of M+T karyotype and A karyotype. A specimen collected on Aug. 20, 1987 by M. Kim was designated as a holotype of Lycoris flavescens M. Kim et S. Lee. Lycoris flavescens var. uydoensis was ranked up to L. uydoensis. A key to all species including descriptions of each taxon was provided.
Unrecorded fern species from Korean flora : Ctenitis maximowicziana, Dryopteris lunanensis and D. decipiens var. diplazioides (Dryopteridaceae)

Three unrecorded fern species from the flora of Korea belonging to family Dryopteridaceae, Ctenitis maximowicziana, Dryopteris lunanensis, and D. dcipiens var. diplazioides, are found along the valley of Mt. Wolgak (alt. 275m) in Gwangju, Korea. C. maximawicziana is well distinguished from the rest of the species in the genus including C. sinii by the color and morphology of scales in basal part of petioles, shape of blades, and the presence of round-reniform shaped indusia. Dryopteris lunanensis is also well distinguished from its close relative, D. atrata, by the number of lateral pinnae, degree of division of first and/or second pinnules in lower pinnae of the blades, and distribution pattern of sori. Dryapteris decipiens var. diplazioides is distinguishable from type variety by degree of division in lower pinnae of the blades. In terms of morphology, var. diplazioides seems to be intermediate between a type variety and D. fuscipes.
Reexamination on V. L. Komarov's collection sites in North Korea (II) - mainly based on Nakai's Flora Koreana vol. II -
Chang, Chin-Sung ; Choi, Byoung-Hee ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 34, issue 1, 2004, Pages 37~41
T. Nakai, who wrote Flora of Koreana vol. II in 1911, cited V. L. Komarov's collections and listed more than 120 specimens with ca. 65 localities. All collection sites cited were described in the Romanized characters based on the Russian pronunciation. Therefore, it is very difficult to pinpoint those sites using the current or old version of Korean map. From this study, many names were reviewed based on other studies (both the Russian version and the Japanese translated version) and records (e.g. specimen label) and presented based on the current provinces with local names, the Chinese character, the GPS data and the first page of citation.
Interspecific relationships of Korean Viola based on RAPD, ISSR and PCR-RFLP analyses

Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 34, issue 1, 2004, Pages 43~61
Molecular taxonomic studies were conducted to evaluate interspecific relationships in Korean Viola 34 taxa including two Japanese populations using RAPD(randornly amplified polymorphic DNA), ISSR(inter simple sequence repeat) and PCR-RFLP(restriction fragment length polymorphism) analysis. Only six and four primers out of 40 arbitrary and 12 ISSR primers were screened for 34 taxa, and were revealed 70 (98.6%) and 28 (96.6%) polymorphic bands, respectively. Fifteen restriction endonucleases produced 80 restriction sites and size variations from the large single copy region of cpDNA, 16 (20%) of which were polymorphic. The separate analyses from the RAPD, ISSR and PCR-RFLP data were incongruent in the relationships among 34 taxa, but combined data was in accordance with previous infrageneric classification system based on morphological characters, especially the subsection and series level. Section Chamaemelanium placed between subsect. Patellares and Vagimtae of section Nomimium was not formed as a distinct group. Viola alb ida complex including three very closely related taxa was recognized independent group within subsect. Patellares in combined data tree. This result strongly suggested that they should be treated to series Pinmtae. RAPD analysis was very useful to clarify the interspecific relationships among the species of Korean Viola than ISSH and PCR-RFLP analyses.
RAPD marker variations between and within the species of Korean Suaeda
Shim, Hyun-Bo ; Choi, Byoung-Hee ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 34, issue 1, 2004, Pages 63~74
The genus Suaeda is one of the most popular plants on salt marsh areas in Korean Peninsular. The entities that comprise taxa in Korea exhibit widely overlapping ranges in all morphological attributes. Ramdom amplified polimorphic DNA (RAPD) markers were used to clarify taxonomic delimitation among the Korean taxa of Suaeda and to analyse genetic variations among the populations of S. japoniro in western and southern coastal regions. Six decamer primers amplified a total of 65 scorable bands, of which 61 were polymorphic. In all primers investigated, S. glauro of sect. Schanginia is the most distinctive species, compared with others of sect. Heterosperma. S. japonica, S. maritima, and S. malacosperma, which have been hardly distinguished each other by external morphology, were readily recognized by its specific DNA bands. The characteristic RAPD markers were identified local populations of S. japonica, but this feature was not revealed within population.
