Abstract
Ten species of copepods, including nine new species, associated with compound ascidians are recorded from Korean waters. Nine new species can be characterized by their major diagnostic features, as follows: Botryllophilus pentamerus n. sp. by having a five-annulated abdomen; B. paucisetatus n. sp. by the presence of four and three setae on the exopods of right and left leg 1, respectively; Haplostoma quadridens n. sp. by the presence of four lobes on the labrum and one seta plus four spines on the exopods of legs 1-4; H. paucidens n. sp. by the presence of only two spines on the distal segment of the antenna; Enterocola horridus n. sp. by having five setae on the antenna, no seta on the caudal ramus, and two setae on leg 5; E. longicaudatus n. sp. by having long caudal rami which are more than three times as long as wide; Thoracodelphys bisetata n. sp. by the presence of only two setae on the basis of the maxillule; T. cerasta n. sp.
by the presence of a large, horn-like process on the distal margin of the basis of leg 2; and Unimeria hirsuta n. sp. by having three setae on the terminal segment of the maxilla. Zygomolgus didemni (Gotto, 1956) previously known only from European waters is reported from Korean waters, with a redescription and illustrations.
