Corydalis alata: A new species of Corydalis sect. Corydalis (Fumariaceae) from Korea
Oh, Byoung-Un ; Kim, Yoon-Young ; Ji, Seong-Jin ; Kim, Jae-Gil ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 40, issue 2, 2010, Pages 79~83
A new species of Corydalis L. (Fumariaceae), C. alata was discovered in Pohang-si, Gyeongsangbuk-do in Korea and is described and illustrated here. The newly described species C. alata is distinct from the closely-related species C. maculata by having tubers with whitish inner surface, sagittate base of the lower outer petals, and smaller seeds.
Rorippa apetala: A new species of Rorippa Scopoli. (Brassicaceae) from Korea
Kim, Yoon-Young ; Ji, Seong-Jin ; Oh, Byoung-Un ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 40, issue 2, 2010, Pages 84~89
Herein is described a new species of Rorippa (R. apetala, Brassicaceae) discovered on the River Seom-gang in Wonju-si, Gangwon-do, Korea. The new species is distinct from the closely-related species, R. palustris and R. globosa, by having adventitious buds on the surface of rhizome-type roots during the fruiting season, usually absent or rarely 1-4, if present then atrophy petals, obpandurate fruits, and seeds usually empty or rarely 1-2 per locule. The key to these species is provided.
Reexamination of foreign collector's sites and exploration routes in Korea (IV) - with respect to T. Ishidoya
Chang, Chin-Sung ; Chang, Kae-Sun ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 40, issue 2, 2010, Pages 90~104
Tstomu Ishidoya (1891-1958), a Japanese taxonomist and pharmacognosist, conducted his plant explorations on the Korean peninsula from 1911 to 1943. Especially from 1912 to 1923 Ishidoya, as a governmentemployee of Chosen Governor-General collected numerous specimens of woody plants which were later studied by T. Nakai. Collection numbers totalling 6,487 (= collections) were recorded according to Nakai's studies, while only 1,350 speciemens are confirmed to be preserved now in three Japanese herbaria (Tokyo Universtiy, Kyoto University and National Museum of Nature and Science). All collection sites were described by Nakai using romanized characters with Japanese pronunciation. For this study, one hundred seventy three locality names were reviewed using those of Ishidoya's specimens that are deposited at TI, KYO, and TNS; the database, Korean Biodiversity Information System (http://www.nature.go.kr), and the articles and literature of Nakai and Ishidoya. These are listed in the order of his collection dates.
Comparative seed morphology of Korean Eranthis (Ranunculaceae)
Jung, Woo-Chul ; Shin, Dong-Yong ; Heo, Kweon ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 40, issue 2, 2010, Pages 105~107
This study was carried out to find specific characters of the seed morphology and anatomy of Korean Eranthis in Ranunculaceae. As a result, E. byunsanensis differs with E. stellata on the basis of presence of unicellular hairs on the seed surface. E. stellata has no unicellular hairs on its seed surface. On the other hand, E. byunsanensis bears such unicellular hairs derived from epidermal cells of the seed surface. Besides other morphological characters used when it was published as a new species, the presence of unicellular hairs on the seed surface strongly supports it as an endemic species of Korea. In addition, to compare the seed morphology of E. pinnatifida and E. pungdoensis, for which mature seeds were not available at this time, an additional study should be conducted in near future.
Lysimachia quelpaertensis (Primulaceae), a new species from Jeju Island, South Korea
Tae, Kyoung-Hwan ; Tho, Jae-Hwa ; Hwang, Seung-Hyun ; Park, Yong-Dae ; Yang, Eun-Jae ; Lee, Jae-Seung ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 40, issue 2, 2010, Pages 108~112
Herein we describe a new species, Lysimachia quelpaertensis in Primulaceae from Jeju Island, South Korea. Lysimachia quelpaertensis differs from L. barystachys, L. fortunei, L. clethorides and L. acroadenia by having verticillate and linear-lanceolate leaves, 5 or 6 petals and 5- or 6-lobed calyx. Among the Lysimachia species, only Lysimachia quelpaertensis has verticillate leaves and white flowers.
A taxonomical examination of Trapa japonica and T. bispinosa based on nut characters
Na, Hye-Ryun ; Kim, Chang-Kyun ; Jung, Jong-Duk ; Choi, Hong-Keun ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 40, issue 2, 2010, Pages 113~117
We examined the sixteen quantitative characters of Trapa and conducted principal component analysis for T. japonica Flerow and T. bispinosa Roxb. in South Korea. Trapa bispinosa has been recorded as 'Ma-reum (T. japonica Flerow)' in the Korean flora, but this taxon is distinct from T. japonica in terms of width, thickness and upper horns of its nuts. Principal component analysis (PCA) confirms the morphologically distinct status for the two species. We suggest the common name 'Keun-ma-reum' for Trapa bispinosa to the Korean flora.
Taxonomic study of Viola albida complex based on RAPD data
Koo, Ja-Choon ; Tak, Hyo-Jin ; Whang, Sung-Soo ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 40, issue 2, 2010, Pages 118~129
A taxonomic study of Viola albida complex, containing the representative individuals of three taxa, V. albida var. albida, V. albida var. chaerophylloides, and V. albida var. takahashii, was done based on RAPD data. The amplified loci were 476 in total; obtained with 68 universal primers on seven OTUs. Nei's genetic dissimilarity appeared relatively low within individuals of V. albida var. albida and V. albida var. chaerophylloides (0.118-0.171 and 0.051 respectively), however, it was higher in individuals of V. albida var. takahashii (0.348). On the other hand, there is no specific trend in terms of genetic dissimilartiy among taxa, such as between individuals of V. albida var. albida and V. albida var. takahashii, between those of V. albida var. albida and V. albida var. chaerophylloides, and between those of V. albida var. albida and V. albida var. takahashii. The similarity of OTUs studied is high in clustering analysis, so that this result is compatible with the establishment of this complex. All OTUs are clustered within two groups. The individuals of V. albida var. takahashii, however, are clustered both to the group of V. albida var. albida and to the group of V. albida var. chaerophylloides, meaning that the genetic difference is high which would be commensurate with their morphological variations.
First record of Oldenlandia brachypoda DC. (Rubiaceae) in Korea
Nam, Bo-Mi ; Park, Myung-Soon ; Chung, Gyu-Young ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 40, issue 2, 2010, Pages 130~133
An unrecorded species of Oldenlandia brachypoda DC. is newly reported from Seogwipo-si, Jejudo, This species is distinguished from Oldenlandia diffusa, the related taxa by the surface and length of the pedicel, the number of flowerd, the shape of the calyx and capsule. The new Korean name 'je-ju-baeg-un-pul', was given considering the collect locality. The illustration, description and key of characters are provided.
