Based on morphological observation, we identified nine ciliates previously unrecorded in Korea, Euplotidium itoi Ito, 1958, Anteholosticha verrucosa (Foissner & Schade, 2000) Berger, 2008, Holostichides dumonti Foissner, 2000, Amphisiella australis Blatterer & Foissner, 1988, Terricirra matsusakai Berger & Foissner, 1989, Uroleptoides binucleatus binucleatus Hemberger, 1985, Uroleptoides magnigranulosus (Foissner, 1988) Berger, 2008, Leptopharynx costatus gonohymen Omar & Foissner, 2012, Pseudochilodonopsis mutabilis Foissner, 1981, from three sites in Korea, which were isolated from three environmental samples, consisting of one seawater and two soil samples. These ciliates were assigned to three classes, five orders, five families, and eight genera. In this study, we provide photographs and brief descriptions and remarks of the nine species.
