Abstract: Scolelepis (Scolelepis) daphoinos is newly reported in Korean fauna. This species can be distinguished from its congeners by the following characteristics: the presence of reddish pigment patches on the posterior part of the prostomium, notopodial postchaetal lamellae that are partially fused to the branchiae, and the presence of only the bidentate hooded hooks. The morphological diagnosis and photographs of S. (S.) daphoinos are provided. The partial mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI), 16S ribosomal DNA (16S rDNA), and the nuclear 18S ribosomal DNA (18S rDNA) sequences from Korean specimens of S. (S.) daphoinos were determined. Species identification was supported by a comparison of DNA barcode sequences of COI and 16S rDNA with morphological examination from the specimens of type locality, China.
