First record of Crepidomanes schmidtianum (Zenker ex Tasch.) K. Iwats. (Hymenophyllaceae) from Korea
Lee, Chang Shook ; Lee, Kanghyup ; Hwang, Youngsim ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 44, issue 1, 2014, Pages 1~5
DOI : 10.11110/kjpt.2014.44.1.1
The newly recorded species, Crepidomanes schmidtianum (Zenker ex Tasch.) K. Iwats. (Hymenophyllaceae) was collected from forests in Mt. Jirisan, Baegmu-dong, Macheon-myeon, Hamyang-gun, Gyeongsangnam- do. C. schmidtianum (vernacular name: 'Du-me-goe-bul-i-kki') was distinguished from other Korean congeners of the genus Crepidomanes by having pseudo-vein, almost wingless in stipe, and involucres cup shaped with dilated. A new Korean name, 'Du-me-goe-bul-i-kki', was given based on its habitat. Descriptions and illustrations of this taxon and its photograph in the habitat are provided along with a key to the species of Crepidomanes from Korea.

DOI : 10.11110/kjpt.2014.44.1.6
Carex taihokuensis Hayata (Cyperaceae) is reported from Jin-do (Isl.), SW Korea, for the first time. It belongs to sect. Digitatae, and had been known from Taiwan, China, and Japan. C. taihokuensis is characterized by the staminate terminal spike, bracts with sheath, pilose perigynia, and style base not thickened. We propose the new Korean name, 'Jin-do-sa-cho', after its first collecting place. We also provide a key to species in sect. Digitatae in Korea and Japan.

Talipariti simile (Blume) Fryxell, Malvaceae is reported as new record from Vietnam. The plant can be differentiated from its allied species T. macrophyllum (Roxb. ex Hornem.) Fryxell in having glabrescent stems with purplish and smaller hairs, lanceolate-oblong and smaller stipules and ovoid capsules which are devoid of apicule or beaks. Taxonomic description, line drawing and color photographs have been provided to add to the species identification. Furthermore, comparison of the diagnostic characters between this species and the above mentioned related species is made.

Two naturalized plants belonging to Asteraceae (Compositae) were collected in Gangwon-do and Jeju-do. Euthamia graminifolia (L.) Nutt., a taxon of unrecorded genus Euthamia Nutt., was found in Inje-gun, Gangwon-do. This species can be distinguished from Solidago japonica Kitam. and S. gigantea Aiton by punctate, entire leaves and disc corollas without vein. Its Korean name was given 'Mi-yeok-chwi-a-jae-bi' because it shows similar external appearances with that of the Mi-yeok-chwi (Solidago japonica Kitam.). Gamochaeta pensylvanica (Willd.) Cabrera was discovered in Jeju-do. It can be distinguished from G. purpurea (L.) Cabrera by withering basal leaves at flowering and relatively short inner phyllaries. This taxon was named 'Mi-guk-pulsom- na-mul' in Korean by considering its specific epithet.
Solanum elaeagnifolium Cav. (Solanaceae), an unrecorded naturalized species of Korean flora

DOI : 10.11110/kjpt.2014.44.1.18
We report a naturalized alien species, Solanum elaeagnifolium Cav. from Chodo Isl., Samsanmeon, Yeosushi, Jeollanam-do province. The native distribution range of the species is the southwestern US and the adjacent region of northern Mexico. The species is related to S. nigrum L., but the species can be distinguished from S. nigrum by the silver green stellate trichome on the surfaces of plants, the elongated leaf shape, and the size and color of the flowers and fruits. Solanum elaeagnifolium Cav. belongs to the Solanum subgenus Leptostemonum. The species is recorded on the invasive species list in the subtropical or temperate regions of many European, Mediterranean, African, South American, Asian, and Australian countries. Therefore, we also need a careful monitoring and prevention strategy for this new invasive species in Korea.
A systematic study of Glechoma L. (Lamiaceae) based on micromorphological characters and nuclear ribosomal ITS sequences

DOI : 10.11110/kjpt.2014.44.1.22
The petal and sepal micromorphology of five species of Glechoma (Lamiaceae) was investigated to evaluate their taxonomic significance, and a molecular phylogeny using the sequences of internal transcribed spacers (ITS) regions of nuclear ribosomal DNA was carried out to resolve their phylogenetic relationships. Stomatal complexes were mostly found in the inner and outer part of the sepal from all investigated taxa, and the size length of the guard cell was variable among the taxa. Five types of trichomes (uni-cellular non-glandular trichome, multi-cellular non-glandular trichome, short-stalked capitate glandular trichome, long-stalked capitate glandular trichome, and peltate glandular trichome) were variable among the taxa as well as their distribution and density. In molecular phylogenetic studies, the genus Glechoma was composed of three geographically distinct major monophyletic groups (Europe-U.S.A., China-Korea, Japan). G. longituba in Korea and China formed well-supported monophyletic group. G. hederacea in Europe and U.S.A. formed a monophyletic and well-supported clade with G. sardoa, which are endemic species in Italy, with G. hirsuta falling as a sister to this clade. However, G. grandis did not form any phylogenetic relationships with the remaining taxa. The ITS analyses provided taxonomic boundaries of taxa in Glechoma although the petal and sepal micromorphological characters provided weak evidences of the systematic value. As further studies, incorporating more DNA regions to the matrix including other additional morphological analysis will be significant to provide clearer taxonomic structure in Glechoma.

Three unrecorded species, Carex chungii Z. P. Wang, C. tsushimensis (Ohwi) Ohwi, C. multifolia Ohwi were found in Korea. C. chungii Z. P. Wang was found in Is. Wan and Is. Geogeum, Jeollanam-do and Namhae, Gyeongsangnam-do. This species is distinguished from C. leuchoclora Bunge by achenes constricted above in the middle. C. tsushimensis (Ohwi) Ohwi was found in Is. Gageo, Sinan, Jeollanam-do. This species is distinguished from C. conica Boott by pistillate scales with a long arista. C. multifolia Ohwi was found in Haenam, Jeollanam-do. This species is distinguished from C. sachalinensis var. sikokiana (Franch. & Sav.) Ohwi by caespitose and leaf of light gray. We provide here their description, illustration, photographs and the key of related species.
Phylogenetic position of Neofinetia and Sedirea (Orchidaceae) and their species identification using the chloroplast matK and the nuclear ITS sequences

DOI : 10.11110/kjpt.2014.44.1.39
Phylogenetic positions of Sedirea and Neofinetia were addressed using the chloroplast matK and the nuclear ITS sequences. We also evaluate the usefulness of the makers for the identification of species and localities. Sedirea and Neofinetia form an independent monophyletic genus, respectively, in both matK and nuclear ITS trees. The sister genus of the Neofinetia was Vanda in both trees. In addition, our trees support the separate recognition of the Neofinetia from Vanda rather than the inclusion of Neofinetia into Vanda. The sister group of the Sedirea was (Dimorphorchis(Pteroceras(Saccolabiun+Phalaeonopsis))) clade. The Dimorphorchis was one of the most probable sister genus to the Sedirea. The sister group relationship between Sedirea and Aerides was suggested by their similar morphology, but not supported in molecular trees. The identification of species and localities of Neofinetia was possible using our two molecular markers. However, several pseudo-gene sequences are discovered from the public data base. In addition, the horizontal gene transfer of chloroplast genomes is frequent events in orchid hybrids. Therefore, we need a careful evaluation for the data prior to systematic use. Generation of sequence data from multiple accessions of a species may helpful to reduce these types of error.
Molecular phylogenetic study of section Sabina (Genus Juniperus) in Korea based on chloroplast DNA matK and psbA-trnH sequences data
Hong, Jeong-Ki ; Yang, Jong-Cheol ; Oh, Seung-Hwan ; Lee, You-Mi ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 44, issue 1, 2014, Pages 51~58
DOI : 10.11110/kjpt.2014.44.1.51
This study aims to define the phylogenetic relationship within Korean section sabina and find molecular markers which resolve the phylogenetic relationship in genus Juniperus and section sabina. cpDNA matK and psbA-trnH were used as molecular markers. The combined analyses of two genes suggested that section sabina was a clade supported by 100% BP. The relationships of [J. chinensis var. sargentii+J. davurica] clade and [J. chinensis var. chinensis+J. chinensis var. procumbens+J. chinensis var. horizontalis] clade were supported by 91% BP and 100% BP, respectively. Thus, the classification of Korean section sabina would be appropriate at follows, (1) J. chinensis var. sargentii+J. davurica, and (2) J. chinensis var. chinensis+J. chinensis var. procumbens According to the results of separate analyses, matK seems to work better resolving power to clarify the phylogenetic ambiguity in Juniperus and section sabina than psbA-trnH.
