New cytheracean ostracod fossils from the Plio-Pleistocene Seogwipo Formation of the Jeju Island, Korea

Article

Abstract

A new genus and two new species of ostracods are described from the Plio-Pleistocene Seogwipo Formation of the Jeju Island, Korea. In this study, Tamnacythere is erected as a new genus, and Tamnacythere seogwipoensis and Kotoracythere paiki are erected as new species. These two new species are the extinct cryophilic ostracods occurring only from the late Pliocene and early Pleistocene strata which are distributed around the Seogwipo area of the Jeju Island, Korea as well as the coastal areas on the East Sea (Sea of Japan) side of central and northern Honshu and southern Hokkaido, Japan.
