Four harpacticoid species belonging to genus Attheyella were confirmed from South Korea: Attheyella (Attheyella) coream Miura, A. (A.) paucisetosa Chang and Kim, A. (Mrazekiella) byblis Chang and Kin, and A. (M.) tetraspinosa, n. sp. The new species and the male of A. (A.) paucisetosa are described. A. (M.) tetraspinosa, n. sp. most resembles A. baikalensis Borutzky, but readily distinguished from it and its relatives by the extraordinarily elongated leg 5 exopod and the female leg 5 basipod bearing four spines on it.
