A new species of anascan Bryozoa, Cauloramphus Korensis, is described from two localities of the Yellow Sea, Korea. The new species is similar to C. spiniferum in the characteristics of cryptocyst, the location of distal spines, distal crescentic cap and more or less perpendicular proximal spines, but can easily be distinguished by the presence of brown spines, rare distal spines and hooked rostrum. The genus Cauloramphus is newly reported from Korea.
