Abstract
An aegid species, Rocinela niponia Richardson, 1909, is a Far Eastern species known from Korean and Japanese waters. In this study, mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) sequences of R. niponia were determined based on four specimens collected from the subtidal zone of Chujado Island, South Korea. We compared DNA barcoding data of this species with its congeners. As a result, there was no intra-specific genetic distance between the four COI sequences of R. niponia. Inter-specific distances between R. niponia and other five aegid species ranged from 23.8% to 35.6%. Morphological diagnosis and images of R. niponia are also provided as a valuable contribution toward the identification of Rocinela species in further taxonomic and ecological studies.
