Mysidacea (Crustacea) from the Sandy Beaches of the Eastern Coast of Korea with Four New Records in the Korean Waters

  • Soo-Gun Jo
  • Min-Kyoung Jeon


The present study reports mysids on sandy beaches along the eastern coast of Korea. Samples were collected with a dip net or a sled net in sandy shores in April 1995 and November 2006. 9 species representing five genera were identified from the present study. Of these, the genusNipponomysis including N. lingvura, N. ornata, andN. imparis, andAcanthomysis nakazatoi were newly recorded from the Korean waters. Morphological descriptions and taxonomic key to species were given. The present study reports that 45 species belonging to 15 genera from the Korean waters have been recorded.
