Some asteroids were collected at a depth of 30 m in Chejudo Island. Of which two species were identified as Luidia maculata Muller et Troschel, 1842 and Linckia laevigata Linne, 1758. These species are turned out to be new to the Korean fauna and redescribed on the morphological characteristics with illustrations. Eighteen species of asteroids are reported to be distributed in the Chejudo Island of Korea.
