Abstract: A sphingid species, Macroglossum corythus Walker, 1856 is newly recorded from Korea. Macroglossum corythus can be characterized by grayish or dark greenish fore- and hindwings, blackish basal, ante- and postmedial lines with a blackish discal dot on the forewing and transverse antemedial line, as well as a strongly dentate postmedial line and a thick, dark brownish tinged subterminal line on the hindwing. The male genitalia of Macroglossum corythus can be characterized by the long saccular process of valva and the phallus with one hooked distal process and the large penshaped cornutus and a notched ridge. The female genitalia of Macroglossum corythus can be characterized by the long tubular ductus bursae and the long ovate corpus bursae with multiple stripes and a long triangular patch of minute signa. To date, six species of the genus Macroglossum have been identified in Korea.
