Abstract

We surveyed the freshwater invertebrates of Jindo Island twice on July and September 2016, as part of a joint faunal survey conducted to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Korean Society of Systematic Zoology. Aquatic insects were not included in this study. We found 38 freshwater species from seven phyla: Porifera, Platyhelminthes, Nematomorpha, Mollusca, Annelida, Arthropoda, and Bryozoa. Twenty-one of the 38 species (55.3%) represented the first record of their respective species on Jindo Island. Among these species, a freshwater shrimp-parasitic isopod, Tachaea n. sp., was identified as a new species.
