So, Ji Hyeon ; Chung, Mi Sook ; Chung, Young Sun ; Lee, Nam Sook ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 43, issue 3, 2013, Pages 161~164
DOI : 10.11110/kjpt.2013.43.3.161
Neottia japonica (Blume) Szlach. (Orchidaceae), previously known to be native in southern part of Japan and Taiwan, was found in Seogwipo-si, Jeju-do, Korea. This species is distinguished from the related taxa of Neottia pinetorum (Lindle.) Szlach and N. nipponica (Makino) Szlach. by smaller plant, lip with T-shaped lamella and auricles embracing column, and flowering in the spring. The local name was given as "A-gi-ssangnip-nan-cho" based on the cuter and smaller plant than N. pinetorum. The description and illustrations of the species on morphological characters, voucher specimens, and photograph at the habitat are provided.

Five taxa of the genus Ajuga L. (Lamiaceae) were known previously in Korea which were mainly distributed in lowland and lower montane areas at 50-1000 m elevation. We report an unrecorded taxon of the genus Ajuga in Korea, namely Ajuga nipponensis Makino. This taxon was discovered at Is. Nok, Boryeong-si, in Chungcheongnam Province. A. nipponensis is found to be distributed along roadsides near villages of the island. A. nipponensis was distinguishable from other Ajuga in Korea by following combination of characters: Stems erect or procumbent, arranged in a dense cluster, corolla whitish-pale pink, 10-12 mm long. This taxon was named 'Bun-hong-kkot-jo-gae-na-mul' in Korean based on color of the corolla. The key to the genus Ajuga in Korea is also provided.

Hwang, Yong ; So, Soonku ; Kim, Muyeol ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 43, issue 3, 2013, Pages 168~170
DOI : 10.11110/kjpt.2013.43.3.168
A new species, Euonymus baekdusanensis M. Kim (Celastraceae), has been named and described from Mt. Baekdu of the Korean peninsula. Euonymus baekdusanensis shares several characteristics (4-merous flowers, 4-angled capsule, warted branches and twigs, etc.) with its related species E. verrucosus Scopoli. It is, however, distinct from E. verrucosus which have small oblong leaves (6-7 cm), short petioles (1-2 mm), and small capsules (6-8 mm) by having large elliptical leaves (11-13 cm), long petioles (6-8 mm), and large capsules (12-15 mm).
First record of Cyrtomium laetevirens and Dryopteris simasakii var. paleacea (Dryopteridaceae) from Korea
Lee, Chang Shook ; Lee, Kanghyup ; Hwang, Youngsim ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 43, issue 3, 2013, Pages 171~180
DOI : 10.11110/kjpt.2013.43.3.171
Two newly recorded species, Cyrtomium laetevirens and Dryopteris simasakii var. paleacea (Dryopteridaceae) were collected from forests in Jeonnam, Geongnam and Jeju-do, with the latter also, found addedly in Gwanaksan, Seoul. C. laetevirens (vernacular name: 'Yun-soe-go-bi) was distinguished from other Korean congeners of the genus Cyrtomium by having glossy laminae, narrow lanceolate, yellow-green pinnae with minutely serrated margin and gradually narrowing shape from base to apex, along with entire, unicolor, and white grayish indusia. D. simasakii var. paleacea (vernacular name: Cheung-cheung-ji-ne-go-sa-ri'), was distinguished by shining leaves, opposite pinnae arrangement, no falcate pinnules, and densely adpressed scaly wholly along with irregular dark brown scales on stipe and rachis. Descriptions and illustrations of the two taxa and their photographs in the habitat are provided along with a key to the species of Cyrtomium and sect. Hirpedes of Dryopteris from Korea.
Genetic variation and population structure of Asarum misandrum (Aristolochiaceae) in Korea
So, Soonku ; Kim, Muyeol ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 43, issue 3, 2013, Pages 181~187
DOI : 10.11110/kjpt.2013.43.3.181
Genetic variation in Asaum misandrum, a woodland herb in Korea, was investigated based on allozyme analysis with starch gel electrophoresis. All of previously reported populations in Korea were sampled and seven loci from six enzymes were analyzed. Overall genetic variation of A. misandrum population showed considerably high levels of genetic variation within the species (A = 2.05, P = 71.4,
= 0.294). A positive
value of A. misandrum indicated overall deficiency of heterozygotes, and a low
value (0.112) meant very little differentiation among populations. Factors contributing to the high levels of genetic diversity found within populations of A. misandrum include population maintenance via wide distribution range from Korea to Japan and primarily outcrossing breeding system. Although it showed moderate genetic diversity level, most habitats of the species were scattered and discontinuous. Besides, low numbers of individuals were found in the most habitats and individuals are collected frequently from the wild due to the unique shape of the flowers as well as the rarity of the species. Thus, there is a need to set up a reasonable conservation strategies including the maintenance mechanism of genetic diversity of A. misandrum.
A taxonomic review of Artemisia sect. Absinthium in Korea
Park, Myung Soon ; Chung, Gyu Young ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 43, issue 3, 2013, Pages 188~195
DOI : 10.11110/kjpt.2013.43.3.188
The morphological characters and scientific names of Korean Artemisia sect. Absinthium were reviewed based on the type specimen, the original description, observation of the living materials and voucher specimens. The form of the habitat, the structure of underground, the leaf shape and capitulum features were valuable characters in identifying the taxa. The sect. Absinthium in Korea was classified as three taxa of A. sieversiana, A. lagocephala, A. fauriei. The illustration and description of each taxa were provided. Particularly, A. fauriei in this section with hair on receptacle and A. fukudo in sect. Abrotanum without hair on receptacle grow in mixed groups on the West shore of Korea. Two species with populations which grow in mixed groups, was observed as being putative hybrid individuals based on morphological characters.
Diagnostic characters of Juncus (Juncaceae) species in Korea
Kim, Sungmin ; Kim, Sangtae ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 43, issue 3, 2013, Pages 196~207
DOI : 10.11110/kjpt.2013.43.3.196
As a recent infrageneric classification of Juncus (Juncaceae), Kirschner suggested two subgenera which are distinguished by the type of inflorescence and the absence/presence of bracteole along with 10 sections which are distinguished by the characters of the leaves, the position of the inflorescence, and types of stamens and seeds. However, an intensive morphological investigation on Korean Juncus has yet to be performed. We surveyed the morphological characters of 14 taxa distributed throughout the Korean peninsula, including one North Korean taxon. The quantitative and qualitative characters of rhizomes, leaves, inflorescences, flowers, fruits, and seeds were investigated on each taxon using about 950 specimens of Korean Juncus on loan from major Korean herbaria. As a result, we provide diagnostic characters with illustrations and a key to Korean Juncus.

In this paper, we conducted the taxonomic study of the tribe Epilobieae Endl. and concluded that a total of nine taxa, including one Chamerion (Raf.) Raf. ex Holub and eight Epilobium L., exist in Korea. Although C. angustifolium subsp. angustifolium has been placed traditionally either in Epilobium or Chamaenerion, it can be clearly distinguished from the species of Epilobium by having alternate leaves, slightly zygomorphic flowers, non-clefted petals, and equal length of 8 stamens, supporting the recognition of genus Chamerion. All but one species of Epilobium, E. platystigmatosum, was investigated for the surface of seeds using scanning electron microscope (SEM). The seed sculpture of Korean Epilobium can be classified into three types, i.e., papillose, reticulate, and ridged. E. ciliatum subsp. ciliatum is the only species Epilobium, which has the ridged seed sculpture. E. amurense subsp. cephalostigma can be distinguished from conspecific E. amurense subsp. amurense based on leaf shape, trichome shape and distribution, size and habit. Both E. fastigiatoramosum and E. palustre have entire leaf margins, but they can be distinguished based on leaf shape, stigma, and seed sculpture; the former has elongated elliptic leaves, capitate stigma, ridged seed sculpture, whereas the latter one has elongated lanceolate leaves, club-shaped stigma, and reticulate seed sculpture. Finally, we report the first record of E. platystigmatosum in Korea, and further comparative study including conspecific populations from Japan and China can clarify the occurrence of this taxon in Korea.
A new record of Habenaria (Orchidaceae) to Korean flora: H. dentata (Sw.) Schltr.
Lee, Hye-Jeong ; Yang, Jong-Cheol ; Lee, You-Mi ; Yang, Hyung Ho ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 43, issue 3, 2013, Pages 223~226
DOI : 10.11110/kjpt.2013.43.3.223
An unrecorded Orchid species, Habenaria dentata (Sw.) Schltr. (Orchidaceae), was recognized in Gahoe-myeon and Ssangchaek-myeon, Hapcheon-gun, Gyeongsangnam-do, South Korea. H. dentata is closely related to H. radiata (Thunb.) Spreng., it can distinguished by sepal white and larger than petals, and serrated margins of the labellum. A new Korean name, 'Keun-hae-o-ra-bi-nan-cho', was given based on its taller stem and more flowers (at least with three) in comparison to H. radiata (Thunb.) Spreng. We provide here its redescription, illustrations, photographs, and a key to its closely related taxa.
A phylogenetic study of Korean Iris L. based on plastid DNA (psbA-trnH, trnL-F) sequences
Lee, HyunJung ; Park, SeonJoo ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 43, issue 3, 2013, Pages 227~235
DOI : 10.11110/kjpt.2013.43.3.227
Molecular phylogenetic studies were conducted to evaluate taxonomic identities and relationships among 16 species of the korean genus Iris L. Korean Iris was grouped by five clades. Series Laevigatae, Tripetalae, Laevigatae and Sibiricae was included to Clade I. Series Chinensis, and Easatae was composed to Clade II. Series Chinensis was included to Clade III. Series Chinensis was composed to Clade IV. Series Crossiris, Pumilae and Pardanthopsis was included to Clade V. Iris dichotoma, I. mandshurica and I. tectorum formed one clade, and it was located mostly in the basal group. I. minutiaurea and I. koreana was not formed independent clade, so it is not clear between them about taxonomic identities. Iris tectorum was established taxonomic system by Series Cossiris in Subgenus Crossiris. Series Chinensis (I. odaesanensis, I. minutiaurea, I. koreana, I. rossii var. latifoia, and I. rossii) was distinguished is clear by Series Chinensis (I. odaesanensis, I. minutiaurea and I. koreana) and Series Chinensis (I. rossii var. latifoia and I. rossii). The Genus Iris was divided into four subgenus (Limniris, Crossiris, Iris and Pardanthopsis). We thought that evolved to subgenus Limniris in subgenus Crossiris, iris and Pardanthopsis.
Genetic diversity and geographic differentiation in the endangered Primula farinosa subsp. modesta, a subalpine endemic to Korea

Many plant species in subalpine regions are under threat of extinction as a result of climate change. In this study, the genetic diversity and geographic differentiation of three regions and six populations of Primula farinosa subsp. modesta (Bisset & Moore) Pax in Korea were assessed using the ISSR (Inter Simple Sequence Repeat) marker. The average genetic diversity (P = 60.62, SI = 0.299, h = 0.190) was relatively lower than that of other long-lived perennials, even though it is a self-incompatible species. AMOVA analysis showed that 50% of the total genetic diversity was partitioned among regions and Bayesian cluster analysis showed some remarkable geographic trends that were structured into 2 or 3 regions, suggesting limited gene flow among regions. Considering the population fragmentation, low level genetic diversity, and high genetic differentiation, it is essential to establish in situ and ex situ conservation strategies for P. farinosa subsp. modesta.
