Prunus speciosa (Koidz.) Nakai belonging to Prunoideae of Rosaceae, a species previously unrecorded in Korean flora, is described. Prunus speciosa (Koidz.) Nakai is similar to Prunus sargentii Rehder and Prunus jamasakura Siebold ex Koidz., but different because it has toothed lobes of calyx tubes with the apex of leaf serrations aristate. This species is naturalized widely in the eastern parts of Jeju Island but is endemic to Japan.
