The bivalve molluscan fauna of Jeju Island (Jeju-do), the largest island of Korea, is reviewed based on original and literature data. An annotated and illustrated catalogue of species with indication of local distribution and taxonomic comments is prepared, supplemented also with data on general distribution, habitats, and primary synonyms. This first part of the paper includes 105 species belonging to 21 families (Nuculidae through Limidae). The history of Jeju molluscan research, a bibliography on all aspects of mollusk biology, and the general ecology of Jeju bivalves in various habitats are also included. Five species are reported as new for Jeju Island, two species as new for Korea, and 11 species have been reported in literature but were not included in the first bivalve catalogue of Jeju by Noseworthy et al. (2007); in total 16 species are added to the fauna.
