Some hydroid specimens were collected by SCUBA diving from 10-25 m deep at Uljin (Nagok) and Jejudo Island (Munseom, Beomseom, Supseom). Among the identified species, three species Eudendrium racemosum (Gmelin, 1791), Sertularella diaphana(Allman, 1886) and Schizotricha divergens Naumov, 1960 are new to the Korean fauna.
