  • Four species of the family Diastylidae (Crustacea: Cumacea) are redescribed based on the samples collected in the Yellow Sea. They are Leptostylis hexaspinula (Liu and Liu, 1990), Dimorphostylis brevicaudata (Zimmer, 1903), Dimorphostylis asiatica Zimmer, 1920 and Dimorphostylis hirsuta Gamo, 1960.

  • A new species, Dimorphostylis namhaedoensis (Cumacea, Diastylidae) is described on the basis of the specimens collected from southern shallow coast of Korean peninsula. The new species resembles four other species, D. asiatica, D. valida, D. hisuta and D. acroplicata, in having three apical spines on the terminal margin of the male telson and three pairs of the oblique ridges on the carapace, but are obviously distinguished from them in that the pattern of the ridges on the carapace is different and the third article of the antennular peduncle is very long in female. Furthermore, the dorsal carina of the female carapace has a row of forward spines and among the three apical spines of male telson, the median spine is much smaller than the lateral ones.

  • Two diastylid species, Dimorphostylis manazuruensis Gamo(1960) and Dimorphostylis longicauda Gamo(1962), are recorded as new to Korea cumacean fauna. The subadult male of D. longicauda is described for the first time. As a result, the genus Dimorphostylis found in Korean waters now consists of eight species.

  • A new species of leuconid cumaceans, Nippoleucon projectus n. sp. is described on the basis of the specimens collected from western shallow coast of the South Korea. This new species is easily distinguished from two previously recorded species (N. hinumensis and N. enoshimensis) in having the fifth abdominal segment prominently projected to rear at dorsal posterior portion and the carapace of the female with three spines on the frontal lobe.

  • A taxonomic study was carried out on the cumacean specimens collected from shallow coast of the Yellow Sea in Korea. As a result, Bodotria ovalis Gamo, 1965 is redescribed as new to Korean cumacean fauna based on the differences between ours and previous researchers' views on this species. B. ovalis rarely occurs in the coast of the Yellow Sea.

  • Through taxonomic survey of specimens collected from the coasts of Korea from 1993 to 2006, Dimorphostylis echinata $Gam{\hat{o}}$, 1962 is new to Korean cumacean fauna. Especially, the adult male and female of D. echinata are described for the first time. Dimorphostylis sculpturensis Vassilenko and Tzareva, 1990 is proposed as a synonym of D. acroplicata Harada, 1960 in this research. Also, its female is redescribed for the first time in Korea.
