A single specimen belonging to the family Bursidae was collected during a scuba diving survey in Jeju Island in Korea and was identified as the red-mouth frog shell, Tutufa bufo (Röding, 1798). To date, two bursid species, Bufonaria rana (Linnaeus, 1758) and Bursa bufonia (Gmelin, 1791), have been recorded in Korean waters. In this study, we describe Tutufa bufo, including coloration and radula shape based on a newly collected specimen. In addition, the partial gene sequence of mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (mt COI) is determined for molecular analysis.
