Abstract

The specimens belonging to genus Mina collected from various freshwater habitats at 65 localties in South Korea during the period from July 1983 to July 1991 were examined. As a result of the present study, three species were identified and one of which was newly reported from Korea. We provided a key to four species of the genus Moina occurring in Korea and described and illustrated males and ephipoidal females poorly known in Korea as well as parthenogenetic females of the three species.
