The Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries(MOF) and Marine Biodiversity Institute of Korea(MABIK) have initiated a project on a trial basis dedicated to improve the existent Korean names of 60 species and to add names to 20 species that are currently without Korean names. In collaboration with the MOF and MABIK, the Malacological Society of Korea also joined the project, specifically to correct the names of 7 species of mollusks from the species mentioned above. Based on the morphological characteristics of these species, five species have unanimously received new Korean names. Due to two compelling opinions, however, the final names for the remaining two species were determined by results from a public preference survey. Through this process, Diodora sieboldii with the Korean name 'Siboltsatgatjogae' is now called 'Gyeopjibunggumeongsatgatjogae', named after its distinctive features a double layered roof and a hole.
