This study on the genus Chordodes was based on the specimens collected from four areas in Korea during the period October 1988 to October 1992. As a result, a new species is described using a scanning electron microscope and conventional method, under the name of Chordodes koreensis. And It was identified that C. japonensis Inoue, 1952 is synonymous with C. ferganensis Kirjanova and Spiridonova, 1989. This genus is reported for the first time from Korea.
