Two species of Syrrhopodon [S. japonicus (Besch.) Broth. and S. armatus Mitt.] were newly recorded from Jeju Island. S. japonicus was found on a rock covered with fine soil on the Che-oreum Volcano. This species is clearly distinguished from other species of the genus by its plants to 40 mm long, leaves bordered with several rows of short cells, and the margins at the leaf shoulders being regularly serrate. Syrrhopodon armatus was found on tree bark on Seopseom islet. It differs morphologically

We propose new Korean names for these two species: 'Seon-o-reum-i-kki' and 'Jag-eun-seon-o-reum-i-kki,' respectively, which are based on their plant size and their first locations in Korea.
