Taxonomic status of Goodyera rosulacea (Orchidaceae): moiecular evidence based on ITS and trnL sequences

Goodyera rosulacea, which is morphologically similar to G. repens, is described recently as a new species based on its distinct morphological characters such as rosette-formed leaves, short rhizome and habitat. To verify the taxonomic identity of G. rosulacea and its taxonomic relationship within Korea Goodyera taxa, sequences of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region of nuclear ribosomal DNA and the trnL region of cpDNA from 24 accessions including 1 outgroup accession were analyzed. Aligned sequences were analyzed using maximum parsimony and distance method, and the taxonomic identity and the taxonomic relationships among the related taxa were estimated by the existence of private marker gene and the phylogenetic tree of the aligned sequences. Morecular data indicate that G. rosulacea gas several private marker genes and shows monophyly in phylogenetic trees of both its and trnL sequences. the pairwise distance between G. rosulacea and the orher taxa of Korean Goodyera was 3.49-6.68% for ITS region and 5.05-9.53% for trnL region, indicating that G. rosulacea could be treated as an independent species. Therefore, our molecular data support the taxonomic of G. rosulacea as a distinct species of Korea. In phylogenetic trees, G. rosulacea formed same clade with G. repens, which has similar morphological characters with G. rosulacea, and showed the lowest pairwise distance with G. repens among Korean Goodyera taxa. These molecular data sugguested that G. rosulacea and G. repens are closely related taxa.

Arisaema thunbergii supsp. geomundoense, a new taxon in Arisaema sect. Tortuosa subsect. Flagellarisaema (Araceae), from Isl. Geomun-do, Dadohae National Park, Korea is described. It is distinct from subsp. thunbergii in having bright purple enlargement at the base of spadix appendage, and in having wrinkled enlargement at the base of spadix appendage from subsp. urashima.
Identification and use of correct scientific names of Vigna angularis var. nipponensis (Ohwi) Ohwi & Ohashi and V. nakashimae (Ohwi) Ohwi & Ohashi in Korea

Among the seven taxa of the genus Vigna, Leguminosae vegetated in Korea peninsula, only two taxa, V. unguiculata subsp. unguiculata and V. vexillata var. tsusimensis, are recognized in vigna. The rests are still remained in the genus Phaseolus in many floras and illustrations of Korea although they were palced into the genus Vigna by verdcourt in 1970. There has been misidentification between Vigna angularis var. nipponensis and V. nakashimae because of their similar morphological characters and habit. It was also found that V. nakashimae has not been recorded in many floras. Objectives of this study are 1) to discuss the taxonomic differences between Vigna and Phaseolus, 2) to have a recommendation for using correct scientific names of Vigna taxa, 3) to discuss the taxonomic characteristics of the subgenus Ceratotropis, and 4) to provide a simple taxonomic key of V. angularis var. nipponensis and V. nakashimae.
Reexamination on foreign collectors' sites and exploration routes in Korea (II) - with respect to T. Nakai -

Takenoshin Nakai (1882-1952), Japanese taxonomist and professor of the University of Tokyo, who was one of Korean flora specialists, conducted his plant exploration from 1909 to 1942 after he completed two volumes of Flora Koreana. His collections, which are currently deposited at the University of Tokyo herbarium (TI), are important research resources. Since all collection sites were simply described in his collection sites in Romanized characters based on Japanese pronunciation, it is difficult for Korean as well as Japanese botanists to pinpoint those sites using the current or the old Korean maps. No single literature has been available regarding his collection routes and sites, although this information is essential to current plant systematic research in Korea. From this current study, all locality names were reviewed based on his own collections as well as his written literatures, and those were listed as the order of his collection dates with seven maps here.
Validation of Prunus choreiana (Rosaceae)

Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 36, issue 3, 2006, Pages 257~262
Prunus choreiana, invalidly published without Latin description in the original text, is validated here. The species has been known as a Korean endemic plant species of deciduous shrub, and a typical calciferous plant mainly distributed in Pyeongnam Province and Hamnam Province, North Korea. However, recently new population was reported from Mt. Myon and another new population is reported here from Mt. Jabyeong in Gangwon-do.
