Abstract
A freshwater gastrotrichs are known from the various habitats as planktonic to benthic fauna, which are recorded approximately 480 species consisting of two macrodasyid and others chaetonotid in the world. Faunistic studies on freshwater gastrotrichs from Korea, since the first report by Lee and Chang in 2000, have been accomplished. As a result, 16 species of seven genera in three families are currently recorded from South Korea. In this presentation we provide a checklist of freshwater gastrotrichs hitherto known from Korea, with a revised key to the Korean species. We also present illustrations and photomicrographs of some taxonomically significant species belonging to the genera Chaetonotus, Setopus, and Neogossea.strotrichs from Korea, since the first report by Lee and Chang in 2000, have been accomplished.
