Abstract

Two species of Tortanus (Eutortanus) are newly recorded from shallow Korean waters: T. (E.) vermiculus Shen, 1955 and T. (E.) komachi Itoh, Ohtsuka and Sato, 2001. As a result of this study, five species are reported in the subgenus of the family Tortanidae in Korea. The sequence of cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 (CO1) is also provided as a molecular characteristic.
