As was first essentially pointed out by Tomoyoshi Ibukiyama, Hecke eigenforms on the indefinite symplectic group GSp(1, 1) or the definite symplectic group GSp(2) over ℚ right invariant by a (global) maximal open compact subgroup are conjectured to have the same spinor L-functions as those of paramodular new forms of some specified level on the symplectic group GSp(2) (or GSp(4)). This can be viewed as a generalization of the Jacquet-Langlands-Shimizu correspondence to the case of GSp(2) and its inner forms GSp(1,1) and GSp(2). In this paper we provide evidence of the conjecture on this explicit functorial correspondence with theta lifts: a theta lift from GL(2)×B× to GSp(1, 1) or GSp(2) and a theta lift from GL(2) × GL(2) (or GO(2, 2)) to GSp(2). Here B denotes a definite quaternion algebra over ℚ. Our explicit functorial correspondence given by these theta lifts are proved to be compatible with archimedean and non-archimedean local Jacquet-Langlands correspondences. Regarding the non-archimedean local theory we need some explicit functorial correspondence for spherical representations of the inner form and non-supercuspidal representations of GSp(2), which is studied in the appendix by Ralf Schmidt.
