Asiacornococcus kaki (Kuwana) known as a serious pest on Diospyros kaki Thunb. has been reported erroneously as Eriococcus lagerstroemiae Kuwana. These two species were redescribed and illustrated for correct identification by the morphological characters of adult females with known host plants. Asiacornococcus Tang & Hao is a newly known genus from the Korean Peninsula.
