Some siphonophores and scyphomedusae were collected from the coasts of Hoopo(Sea of Japan) and Geojedo Island, Changson(Korea Strait) in Korea respectively. They identified into Porpita umbella O. F. Muller, 1776 of the order Siphonophora in the Hydrozoa and Dactylometra quinquecirrha L. Agassiz, 1862 of the Semaeostomeae in the Scyphozoa. P. umbella looks like a bule button. It's chitinous float is light brown and the other body protions are turquoise blue. D. quinquecirrha has four long curtain-like oral lobes which are highly flexible and ornamented with numerous nematocyst warts, and 32 radiating reddish brown stripes upon exumbrella. The Siphonophora is reported for the first time and three scyphomedusae are reported in Korea so far.
