Abstract
Eutima japonica Uchida, 1925, a bivalve-inhabiting hydrozoan was collected for the first time in Korea, associating with Mytilus galloprovincialis. The morphology of male medusae of this hydrozoan is clarified by culture and described as well as other developmental stages. As the present material from Korea is in good accord with that of the northern Japanese form of E. japonica, so the geographical distribution of the northern form of this species is widened, Japan, China and Korea. Green fluorescent protein distribution pattern of this medusa is also described and compared with that of the most related species Eutima sapinhoa Narchi and Hebling, 1975.
