  • The Korean byozoans belonging to the Smittinidae, collected at 15 localities from the South Sea during the period from 1969 to 1991, were studied taxonomically. They are found to consist of eleven species, including one new species, Parasmfttfna contraria sp. nov. Of remaining 10 species, following four are known to be new to the Korean fauna: Smittfna malleolus, Parasmittfna elongata, Parasmittina crosslandf and Smfttofdea t-eticulata. Up to now, it is known that the Korean Smittinidae comprises 21 recorded species, including 19 species found from the South Sea. Eleven species are dealt with in the present report, with presentation of keys to the species of each genus, and photographic illustrations for the new species and tliose new to the Korean fauna.

  • A new parasmittinid bryozoan, Parasmittina pyriformis, is reported from four localities in Korea. This new species closely resembles Parasmittina trispinosa in having one to three spines and a triangular avicularium lateral to the orifice. However, P. pyriformis is characteristic in that a single or paired small pear-shaped avicularia are situated lateral to the orifice and a triangular avicularium occurs in laterals to the orifice or on the frontal wall. The new species is also unique in having two spines in most zooids, but rarely one or three spines, whereas P. trispinosa usually has three spines, sometimes two or four.

  • Two smittinid species, Pleurocodonellina signata and Smittina torques, are new to Korean bryozoan fauna. Smittina elongata recorded as a new species from Japan is synonymized with Pleurocodonellina signata, and Smittina torques has been reported only from Hew Zealand so far. The genus Pleurocodonellina is recorded in Korean waters for the first time.

  • Six smittinid species were identified from Korean waters. Two of which were previously recorded in the Korean bryozoan fauna are reviewed. Parasmittina raigii (Audouin, 1826) reported from Gwabutan, Jeju Island is re-examined and reidentified as Parasmittina serrula Soule and Soule, 1973, which is new to the Korean fauna. Smittoidea reticulato (MacGillivray, 1847) is reported as species which doesn't occur in the Pacific Ocean Accordingly, Smittoidea reticulata should be deleted from the Korean bryozoan fauna and the Korean specimen identified as Smittoidea reticulata is synonymous with Smittoidea pacifica Soule and Soule, 1973. Fourteen smittinid bryozoans from Korea are thus recorded so far.
