Animal Systematics, Evolution and Diversity (ASED) is published quarterly by the Korean Society of Systematic Zoology. The ASED is a peer-reviewed international journal for rapid publication of original articles on the systematic zoology, evolution and biodiversity. ASED accepts contributions on systematics, conservation biology, and evolutionary biology with a preference toward systematic works such as discovery of new taxa, taxonomic reviews and revisions, phylogenetics and population genetics, biogeography and phylogeography, and biodiversity studies concerning animal taxa of the Korean peninsula and surrounding areas of East Asia. ASED is indexed by CrossRef, KoreaScience, DBpia, BIOSIS Previews, DOAJ and Zoological Record.

Hemiaegina minuta Mayer, 1890 belonging to the family Caprellidae was collected from Jeju Island in Korea. This species has extensive habitats worldwide but it is the first record of the genus Hemiaegina from Korean waters. This monotypic species of the genus Hemiaegina has the following characteristics: gnathopod 1, propodus with a roundly swollen proximal projection; gnathopod 2, propodus with a bilobed triangular process; pereonite 2 with a pair of projections ventrally; and pereopod 7, propodus with a serrated palm. In this study, H. minuta is fully illustrated based on the mature specimens.
