Two undescribed species of Hypericum (Clusiaceae) have been found during floristic research in Korea. Hypericum chejuense S.-J. Park & K.-J. Kim and H. jeongjocksanense S.-J. Park & K.-J. Kim are described and illustrated from Cheju Island in southern Korea and Jeongjock Mountain in southeastern Korea, respectively. Hypericum chejuense and H. jeongjocksanense are easily distinguished from the closely related H. erectum Thunberg ex Murray and H. laxum (Blume) Koidzumi, respectively, by their habit, petal and sepal size, inflorescence type, style length, stylar hair distribution, leaf base shape, stem branching pattern, sepal size, and DNA sequence from the nuclear ITS regions.
