We report the first occurrence of Ophichthus erabo (Jordan and Snyder, 1901) collected in the waters around Jeju Island.
The morphologic characteristics of this species include rich brown semicircular spots distributed on the head, the back, and the
dorsal fins. Ophichthus erabo has a similar body color to Ophichthus polyophthalmus but can be clearly distinguished
from the latter by the number of vertebrae (152-155 in O. erabo vs. 147-149 in O. polyophthalmus) and the existence
of a white spot at the center of a semicircle (i.e., no white spot in O. erabo vs. a white spot in O. polyophthalmus). We
suggest a new Korean name for O. erabo to be “Mul-bang-ul-ba-da-baem-gang-eo”.
