A new species of draconematid nematode, Paradraconema jejuense n. sp., is described from the shallow sublittoral coarse sediments of Jeju Island, Korea. Paradraconema jejuense n. sp. is most similar to P. antarcticum Allen and Noffsinger, 1978 in having similar habitus (long slender body) and amphideal fovea (doubled elongate spiral in male and circular spiral in female), but is distinguished by the following characteristics: larger number of posterior sublateral adhesion tubes (10 in male and 11-12 in female) and subventral adhesion tubes (16 in male and 17-18 in female), fewer cephalic acathiform setae on rostrum (a pair of small cephalic acathiform setae in both sexes), the absence of eye-spots, and the presence of a differentiated lateral field in mid-body region. This is the first taxonomic report on Paradraconema species from Korea.
