  • The first zoea of Eriphia sebana is described and illustrated in detail for the first time. Its morphological characteristics are compared with those of other known species of the Menippidae from the northwestern Pacific Ocean. The general morphology of it corresponds well with other known zoeas of the Menippidae, except that of Sphaerozius nitidus. It is found that the zoeas of E. sebana and E. smithi can be separated by the exopod of the antenna, which has three setae in E. sebana and four setae in E. smithi.

  • Xanthid crabs, decapod crustacean, with the black coloured fingers, are easily found under rocks or stones in the intertidal or subtidal zones. Two xanthids, Etisus laevimanus Randall, 1840 and Paraxanthias elegans (Stimpson, 1858), were newly reported in Korean waters as part of continuous taxonomic studies on crabs. The genus Paraxanthias Odhner, 1925 was also reported for the first time in Korea. Of these, the examined specimen of P. elegans showed eight feathery hairs on the subdistal tip of the first gonopod, which differs from the description of Dai and Yang at 1991. Here, the descriptions and illustrations of these species are provided. Korean Xanthoidea currently consists of 30 species belonging to 25 genera.

  • Many members of xanthid crabs have the black coloured fingers and are found easily in the intertidal or subtidal zone. Three xanthids, $Danielea$ $noelensis$ (Ward, 1934), $Etisus$ $anaglyptus$ H. Milne Edwards, 1834, and $Gaillardiellus$ $rueppelli$ (Krauss, 1843), are newly reported from Korean waters as a result of continuous taxonomic studies on crabs. Of these, the present specimen of $D.$ $noelensis$ has rather projecting angle on the antero-external border of the merus of the third maxilliped differed from that of the original description. The genus $Danielea$ Ng and Clark, 2003 and the genus $Etisus$ H. Milne Edwards, 1834 are also reported first time from Korean fauna. Their descriptions are provided with illustrations. Korean Xanthoidea now consists of 28 species belonging to 24 genera.
