Abstract

The joint faunal survey of Jindo Island, Korea was performed by the Korean Society of Systematic Zoology during June 29-July 1, 2004 in commemoration of the 20th anniversary. In this study, 20 echinoderm species of 13 families, ten orders in four classes such as one crinoid species, seven asteroid species of four families in three orders, five ophiuroid species of three families in two orders, four echinoid species of two families in one order, and three holothuroid species of three families in three orders collected from six localities (Bealpo, Chopyung, Supum, Hoedong, Seomang, and $34^{\circ}11'N\;and\;126^{\circ}21'E)$ were identified. Of these, one crinoid (Antedon serrata), two asteroids (Solaster dawsoni and Distolasterias nipon) and one pohiudoid (Astrodendrum sagaminum) are newly added to the echinoderm fauna of Jindo Island and one holothudoid (Pseudocnus sp.) is newly recorded in Korean waters. The total 31 species are presently listed with some brief remarks and their distribution patterns are discussed based on the composition of geographical distribution forms.
