Abstract

The soil hypotrichs collected from the moss-covered soils in the campus of Seoul National University were identified as Holosticha multistylata Kahl, 1928 and H. sylvatica Foissner, 1982. These two species are discovered for the first time from Korea and redescribed with illustrations. The description was based on the observation of living specimens, protargol impregnated specimens and biometric analysis. They are distinguished from congeneric species by their following characteristics : 4 frontal cirri in H. multistylata and 7-8 in H. sylvatica, 3 buccal cirri in H. multistylata and 1 in H. sylvatica, 3 dorsal kineties in H. multistylata and 5 in H. sylvatica.
