The rotifers inhabiting several lowland swamps in Kyngsangnam-do were taxonomically investigated. Collectings were carried out four times at 10 sites in such lowland swamps as Up, Chunam-ji , Chilnal-np and Oisong-np from 22 February 1988 to 2 October 1988. As a result, 4 spcies, 9 subspecies, 2 varieties and 2 forms of monogonont rotifiers in 5 families were identified, of which following 3 species and 3 subspecies are new to Korea ; Testudinella mucronata hauerensis, Platyias quadricornis , Mytilina acanthophora, Lecane ungulata ungulata.
