Abstract

Two species of Pareurystheus belonging to the family Corophiidae are added to the Korean fauna: Pareurystheus latipes Tzvetkova, 1977 and P. anamae (Gurjanova, 1952). P. latipes is similar to the P. anamae in the most of morphological characteristics. However, two species differ in the forms of antenna 1, gnathopod 2, pereopods 5-7 and telson. This genus Pareurystheus is reported for the first time from Korea. They are described and figured in detail.
