This study deals with 8 species in 3 families of Collembola including 6 new records of Korea. They are Oudemansia esakii (Kinoshita, 1932), Axelsonia littoralis (Moniez, 1890), Sinella (S. str.) straminea (Folsom, 1899), Sinella (S. str.) coeca (Schott, 1899), Entomobrya marginata (Tullberg, 1871), and Willowsia bimaculata (Borner, 1909). Among them Oudemonsia esakii, Axelsonia littoralis and Entomobrya marginata are halophilous species. Sinella straminea and Sinella coeca were collected from nests of ants comprising the first report of myrmecophilous Collembola from Korea. The Collembolan fauna of Korea is accordingly listed as 203 species in 10 families.
