Triadenum breviflorum (Wallich ex Dyer) Y. Kimura in Nakai & Honda (Hypericaceae), previously known only in northeast India, China and Taiwan, was found in a few wetlands of Jeju Island in 2008. Additionally, some images online of T. breviflorum suggest that it exists in other places on the Korean peninsula but that it has been misidentified as Triadenum japonicum. This species is distinguished from the latter by white petals, inflorescence from nodes 6-11, linear to narrowly elliptic leaves, and an attenuated base. The local name Huin-kkot-mul-go-chu-na-mul implies a white flower rather than the flesh-pink color of T. japonicum. The morphological characteristics of the species are provided with photographs of the habitat.
KeyWords: Triadenum breviflorum, Korea, Hypericaceae
