Two marine tardigrades belonging to the genus Halechiniscus Richters, H. jejuensis n. sp. and H. remanei Schulz are recorded from Jeju Island, Korea. Halechiniscus jejuensis n. sp. is distinguished from the congeners by the shape and position of lateral body processes, the shape of sensory papilla on leg IV, and the contour of head portion not clearly divided into two lobes. A revised key to the nine species of the genus Halechiniscus is prepared.
