A taxonomic study of the Oxyporinae including a single genus Oxyporus Fabricius in Korea is presented. Members of the genus are known to be obligate inhabitants on fleshy mushrooms. They are characterized by crescent-shaped last labial palpomere. Nine species are recognized, five of which are reported for the first time in Korea (Oxyporus basicornis Cameron, O. basiventris Jarrige, O. crocatus Fauvel, O. niger Sharp, O. triangulum Sharp). The illustrations, descriptions, and key to the Korean species of the Oxyporinae are presented.
