Abstract


Six species in two families of Cheilostomata—Calloporidae and Lacernidae—are described from the southern coasts of the Korean Peninsula, resulting in a new distributional record and four new species to the Korean fauna. Further, Woosukia n. gen. is described, based on an existing species. Two species names (Crassimarginatella crassimarginata and Arthropoma cecilii) are deleted from the Korean faunal list owing to previous misidentification, with the net result that the Korean cheilostome fauna is increased to 125 species. The new additions to the fauna are: Crassimarginatella kumatae (Okada), Retevirgula asiana n. sp., Woosukia subhexagona (Ortmann), Arthropoma magniporosum n. sp., Arthropoma minus n. sp., and Phonicosia crena n. sp. The biogeographic relationships of some western Pacific taxa are discussed.
