Abstract
A new species of the subgenus Euacartia, Acartia forticrusa n. sp., is described from Korean estuaries and compared with its congeners, A. southwelli Sewell, 1914 and A. sarojus Madhupratap and Haridas, 1994 based on morphological and molecular characteristics. This is the third species from the Acartia subgenus Euacartia. The new species differs from its congeners in the longer antennules, the higher ratio of length to width of caudal rami, and the shape of fifth legs of both sexes. The rnitochondrial gene cytochrome oxidase subunit I (mtCOI) sequences differ from A. southwelli by 21 to 23%. The geographical range of A. forticrusa is predicted to meet the range of A. southwelli, in the Indo-Malayan region.
