Abstract: From a result of surveys on the biodiversity monitoring for moths in Korea, six species of micro-moths that were never known from Korea are reported here for the first time from this country. They are: Udea pseudocrocealis (South, 1901) of the family Crambidae, which has been known as endemic to Japan; Epinotia albiguttata (Oku, 1974) of the family Tortricidae, which was known belonging to Hikagehamakia Oku, 1974; and four species of the family Gelechiidae: Protoparachronistis concolor Omelko, 1986 and P. discedens Omelko, 1986, which were described from Primorisk, Russian Far East; Thiotricha pancratiastis Meyrick, 1921, which is known from Isl. Jejudo, and Thiotricha sp. which is being described in a separate paper. Here we provide images of adults and genitalia for the unrecorded species with a brief diagnosis.
