Twelve species in five genera of parasitic copepods are recorded from seventeen species of freshwater fishes of Korea. They are Ergasilus coniformis n. sp., Ergasilus ventriosus n. sp., E. briani Markewitsch, E. peregrinus Heller, Neoergasilus joponicus (Harada) N. lonsispinosus Yin, N. inflatus Yin, N. bullatus n. sp., N. angustus n. sp., Sinergasilus undulatus (Markewitsch), Lernaea cyprinacea L., and Lamproglena chinensis $Y{\"{u}}.$ As the most prevalent parasitic copepod, Neoergasilus japonicus is found to parasitize as many as ten species of freshwater fishes in Korea. The fish Zacco platypus, from which seven species of parasitic copepods are discovered, turned out to be the most preferred host of the parasitic copepods in this country. Full descriptions are given of the new species and new records of Korea. Lamproglena chinensis, an incompletely known species, is also redescribed.ibed.

17종의 한국산 담수 어류로부터 5속 12종의 기생성 요각류가 발견되었다. 이들은 피라미낫벌레 (Ergasilus coniforemis n. sp.). 배불뚝낫벌레 (Ergasilus ventriosus n. sp.), 장구머리낫벌레 (E.briani Markewitsch). 쏘가리낫벌레 (E.peregrinus Heller). 풍선신낫벌레 (Neoergasilus inflatus Yin), 일본신낫벌레 [Neoergasilus japonicus (Harada)], 큰가시신낫벌레 (N. longispinosus Yin), 뚱보신낫벌레 (N. builatus n. sp.), 흘쭉신낫벌레 (N. angustus n. sp.), 키다리중국낫벌레 [Csinergasiius undujatus (Markewitsch)]. 닷벌레 (Lernaea cyprinacea L.), 중국민물아가미붙게 (Lamproglena chinensis Yu)이다. 일본 신낫벌레는 한국에서 가장 흔한 담수어류 기생성 갑각류로서 10종의 담수어류에 기생하는 것이 발견되었다. 또한, 피라미는 한국에서 가장 다양한 갑각류가 기생하는 숙주로서, 7종의 요각류가 이 어류에 기생하는 것이 발견되었다. 발견된 기생성 갑각류 중에서 신종과 한국 미기록종을 기재하였다. 과거에 기재가 불완전하게 이루어진 중국민물아가미붙게도 재기재하였다.
